Grant Summary

$225,000 over 24 months to create a common intellectual experience that reaches 25 percent of the incoming class through participating sections of ENG 101/102 and launch a certificate in African American Studies. The certificate is designed to incentivize course-taking in the humanities and provide more coherent pathways through general education through thematically aligned clusters of courses (e.g., “Africa and the Diaspora”).
