Endowment for seminars, courses, and other humanities programs for faculty, students, representatives of local cultural institutions, and the general public, as well as salary support for a digital humanities coordinator.

Case Western Reserve University seeks a $650,000 Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to increase the endowment, enhance the programming, and extend the impact of the Baker-Nord Center (BNC) for the Humanities. The NEH Challenge Grant, along with the new resources that it will help leverage, will be used by BNC to 1) foster humanities scholarship at the highest level by utilizing developing paradigms of scholarly exchange and collaboration; (2) engage the public in the humanities through public programming and community collaborations; and (3) improve humanities research, education, and dissemination of scholarship through the digital humanities. These aims are essential if BNC is to meet three overarching goals to: invigorate humanities scholarship on a campus perhaps better known for its bio-medical and engineering disciplines; ensure greater sustainability for achievements in the humanities represented by our faculty and students; and foster collaborative partnerships with neighboring cultural institutions.
