Grant Summary

$350,000 over 24 months to develop and scale a humanities educational framework that, upon full implementation, is integrated into the general education requirements at ten campuses within the Texas A&M University System. The framework will be anchored by a gateway course, The Human Experience, that introduces students to the humanities using transformative texts and serves as the launching pad for a general education certificate program.
