Hudson River Valley Institute at Marist College

To support a program director, education specialist, and an annual conference for the Hudson River Valley Institute.

The Hudson River Valley Institute (HRVI) at Marist College actively promotes scholarship and public understanding in the area of Hudson River Valley studies. The Institute contributes to the overall intellectual development of its community by stimulating public interest and academic research in a region that played a vital role in the development and history of New York State and the nation. HRVI proposes to further its public and scholarly outreach by: 1) creating a permanent, full-time program director to improve HRVI's digital library, publications, and educational programs; 2) establishing an annual conference on Hudson River Valley history and culture; and 3) engaging Marist faculty in the development of materials for K-12 teachers and students. HRVI seeks to ensure its long-term sustainability and success as a regional studies center by adding $2 million to its endowment in support of these initiatives.
