The Hutchins School of Liberal Studies awarded Teagle/NEH grant

May 23, 2023

The Hutchins School of Liberal Studies is very proud to have been awarded the Teagle Foundation/National Endowment for the Humanities grant of $25,000 for its proposal, "Culture, Sovereignty, Land: Revitalizing GE Pathways" for the academic year 2023-2024. Project Directors include Dr. Janet Hess, Dr. Stephanie Dyer, and Dr. Wendy Ostroff, and team members include Dr. Eric McGuckin and Dr. Justine Law. 

This grant will enable the Hutchins School of Liberal Studies to establish new criteria for transformative texts; revise and revitalize curriculum pathways and advising to conform to state and institutional demands; and most importantly, develop an implementation proposal to expand the Hutchins GE lower division curriculum to a large percentage of the incoming student body through SSU's First Year Experience program. Structured around the themes of "Culture, Sovereignty, and Land" this Teagle/NEH project will make Hutchins' curriculum more coherent and relevant to first generation students, low-income students, and students of color.
