Explore the teaching of humanities in higher education across disciplines and pathways to support transfer students.

About this Event

About the Conference

One little conference for three big ideas:

  • Support the study of Humanities across disciplines in higher education
  • Support the transfer of community college students to 4 year universities for degree completion
  • Provide a space for Mellon grantees to discuss how to best fulfill the mission of Community College grants

Thus this conference is designed with those needs in mind and aims to start, continue, and grow conversations about strategies, pitfalls, best practices and more! The conference will provide an opportunity to explore how the humanities are taught across disciplines in higher ed. We are inviting proposals that include innovative practices and programs for incorporating the Humanities across disciplines and for supporting the transfer of community college students to 4 year colleges. In addition, we invite other Mellon grantees to sign up for our interactive roundtable sessions that are meant to help support one another in meeting the mission of our grants!

The conference will include keynote addresses and interactive workshops in which participants will learn and share their experiences with, approaches to, and ideas about the following topics:

  • Innovative Pedagogies: Interdisciplinary Pedagogy and Curricula in the Humanities
  • Transfer and Continuity: Pathways between Community and Four-Year Colleges
  • Diversity and Inclusion: Learning and Life Circumstances of the “New Majority” College Student
