Thank you to all of our grantors. Your past and ongoing support is key to the Futures Initiative's success in innovating higher education.
We at the Futures Initiative and HASTAC are deeply honored to be part of a visionary $3.1 million Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant dedicated to humanities education at the nation’s community colleges and introductory humanities education for the “new majority” of college students entering universities in the U.S. today.
This multi-layered peer mentorship program, funded by the Teagle Foundation, will reconnect liberal arts teaching and learning with the mission of public higher education and the needs of what has been called the “new majority” of undergraduate college students, while also supporting graduate students’ development as both teachers and learners. Thank you also to CUNY Central office for generously funding the first round the Peer mentoring program.
