Implementation of a sustainability plan for the digital network “Humanities Commons” by enhancing the applicant’s technical and administrative capacity to host the network and ensure its continuity. 

Humanities Commons, launched in December 2016, is a trusted, not-for-profit network on which more than 17,000 humanities scholars post professional profiles, discuss their common interests, develop new publications, and share their work with the world. Humanities Commons is implementing a sustainability plan that includes transitioning the network’s hosting and fiscal sponsorship to Michigan State University, offering new institutional memberships to colleges and universities, and expanding its organizational member base. Our application for a Challenge Grant seeks to support that transition by adding (1) a lead developer and (2) a membership manager to the team at MSU, allowing both the platform and its community of support to scale in ways that facilitate the network’s long-term sustainability.
