Grant Summary

$225,000 over 24 months to provide incoming students with a common intellectual experience in a required first-year two-semester sequence for English Composition and launch the Global Humanities minor. The English composition sequence will be redesigned to incorporate common texts over the course of the academic year. Students will have the option to complete a strand of general education courses that also serve as the building blocks for a new 18-credit minor in Global Humanities; the minor both incentivizes taking a more coherent cluster of general education courses while also encouraging students to pursue additional coursework in the humanities.
