Design of a curricular pathway for undergraduate students, integrating humanities research, digital humanities, social science methods, and community engagement.

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and Lewis and Clark Community College will plan a Digital Community Engagement Pathway to unite faculty and students in research teams beyond the classroom’s traditional boundaries. The Pathway will recruit a cohort of underserved students as fellows who will work in teams of five with one faculty member and a community partner to address large-scale social problems using methods central to the digital humanities and social sciences. Teams will meet with others in their cohort to increase their interdisciplinary focus. The Pathway will explore direct applications of the humanities and social sciences while providing underrepresented and first generation students meaningful learning experiences to increase retention rates and student success. The committee will conduct relevant research, visit comparable programs, collect survey data, develop a recruitment plan, create a sustainable model for community partnerships, and finalize curricula.
