Endowment for three staff positions to support humanities programs for faculty, students, and the general public, and the purchase of humanities materials for local cultural and educational institutions.

Northampton Community College and its seven community partners will use funding from the endowment established to program public and college activities focusing on an annually selected theme from the humanities. A nationally-recognized speaker will provide the culminating event each year. Activities during the year will include credit and non-credit course offerings, distance education coursework, a film festival, a one community one book series of activities, speakers, panel discussions, service learning opportunities, museum displays, and collaborative teaching opportunities between the college and the school districts. For smaller group discussions, like the book group and panel discussions, podcasts will be posted to the college website. For the larger panel discussions, and especially for the culminating major speaker event, there will be live broadcasts through the college website.
