Preserve+Share+Produce Humanities Initiative within The Archives at Illinois College

Renovation of the College Archives, fundraising activities, and endowment for the Preserve+Share+Produce (P+S+P) Humanities Initiative.

Illinois College requests a $200,000 grant that we will match with $600,000 in new donations to launch the Preserve+Share+Produce Humanities Initiative. Through this Initiative, we will preserve archival materials; share them broadly with students, researchers and the public; and produce new resources to enhance the understanding of the history of society and institutions in central Illinois. We envision that each year, students, faculty and other scholars will produce at least five new or continuing substantive projects based on their work in our newly housed and professionally managed Archives. As a consequence, the College's focus on the humanities will increase and the products of our work will enhance humanistic knowledge. This Initiative will expand and improve the facilities of The Archives at Illinois College within Schewe Library; provide substantial support to increase an Archivist position from part- to full-time; and strengthen research and teaching in the humanities.
