The development of the Summer Teacher Institute, "The Unfinished Nation," the Summer Honors Symposium, "The Pursuit of Happiness" for high school students, a college-level course for low-income adults, "Humanity in Perspective," and a special issue of Oregon Humanities magazine that examines consumerism and American identity.

OCH's new thematic categories of Globalism, Media and Consumer Culture, and Place and Community will be focused through We The People towards four programs that reach different audiences, and help Oregonians think about issues integral to the American story. First, the OCH Summer Teacher Institute The Unfinished Nation -- July 17-19 on the campus of Southern Oregon University -- will serve 30 teachers from all regions of the state. Second, the OCH Summer Honors Symposium: The Pursuit of Happiness is a three-day overnight think camp for high-school students from all of Oregon. Third, Humanity in Perspective will provide a free college-level course in the humanities for low-income adults that examines the foundations of democracy. Finally, Oregon Humanities summer issue will examine how consumerism and the accumulation of "stuff" has become a part of the American identity. These projects will commence July 1, 2009 and end, including any evaluation, by June 30, 2010.
