A five-year cooperative agreement to develop and implement new humanities pathways in undergraduate education.

The Teagle Foundation proposes a cooperative agreement with the National Endowment for the Humanities to revitalize the critical role of the humanities in undergraduate general education. The “proof of concept” that has inspired this proposed initiative is Purdue University’s Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts certificate program, which introduces incoming college students to significant works of literature and philosophy and enables them to draw connections between the humanities and their professionally oriented programs of study through thematically organized clusters of general education coursework. We propose a high-profile grant-making initiative, complemented by annual faculty professional development institutes, to provide institutions with a strong mix of incentives and support to embark on genuine reform that places the humanities at the center of general education.
