The development of a core curricular pathway and new course offerings focused on Cleveland and the Rust Belt region.

The rustbelt region is known as a place of poverty, discrimination, neglect, and population decline. Cleveland – a prototypical rustbelt city – and its inner-ring suburbs include an array of distinct neighborhoods that are historically divided by ethnicity, race, and socioeconomic status. But, Cleveland’s story is far from finished. Ursuline College’s students are the citizens who will help to write the next chapter of rustbelt revival. Ursuline seeks NEH funding to create a pathway through our core curriculum – one that focuses on the rustbelt, social solutions, and reimagining the humanities. The courses will emphasize digital skills, mapping, and storytelling to analyze the history of the region. They will contribute to public-facing student scholarship, will serve as the foundation for all undergraduate majors, and will give students the intellectual framework to engage locally with the community as problem-solvers and critical thinkers in Cleveland’s specific cultural context.
