A Cornerstone for the Humanities: The Institute of Arts and Humanities

The construction of a new Institute of Arts and Humanities, located in the university’s Arts and Humanities Building, to support scholarly research and collaborative programming in the areas of global, public, and digital humanities.

This proposal seeks NEH funding to support construction costs of a new home for the Institute of Arts and Humanities on the 6th floor of a brand new Arts and Humanities Building to be completed in 2020-21. The Institute of Arts and Humanities launched in 2016-17 connects 15 interdisciplinary programs and centers and it is currently constrained by space limitations. Under the banner of the Institute of Arts and Humanities, curricula will be revised, interdisciplinary collaborations undertaken and high-quality scholarly research completed with programs initiated in the areas of global, public and digital humanities. The institute will bring visibility to the humanities on a largely STEM campus, attracting top-caliber scholars, graduate students and undergraduate majors in the humanities. Additionally, off-campus visitors and the greater community will find this new location easily accessible to the many public programs being offered.
