Humanities Fellows

The Humanities Fellows Program, sponsored by a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, brings together faculty members from the School of Business Administration, the School of Education and Health Sciences, the School of Engineering, and the humanities departments of the College of Arts and Sciences for the purpose of faculty collaboration and curricular development. The program is designed to encourage faculty to work across disciplinary boundaries on projects that foster integrated learning and scholarship. While the program seeks primarily to promote curricular innovation, Humanities Fellows are also expected to engage in scholarship related to integrated learning and teaching across disciplines.
