Expanding UCF’s Center for Humanities and Digital Research (CHDR) Infrastructure, Research, and Public Programming

The construction of a digital humanities laboratory within a new campus building, and the purchase of equipment and software, server storage space, and other furnishings in order to foster collaborative humanities learning and research, digital preservation of collections, and public programming.

The Center for Humanities and Digital Research at the University of Central Florida seeks to expand its current facilities, research, and programming. The direct expenditures grant and the required matching funds will enable the addition of a digital humanities collaboratory in the newly constructed Trevor Colbourn Hall and update all our equipment to support collaborative research, digital preservation and access, and public programming. The grant will help increase the number of faculty and students learning design, programming, and digital archiving skills; generate new collaborative projects and scholarship; and accelerate institutional and public humanities programming. Plans for raising funds are closely tied to UCF’s IGNITE fundraising campaign and the College of Arts and Humanities’ goal within this campaign of raising $20 million by 2020. With the help of the Provost’s Office, the campaign plans to identify specific business and private donors.
