NEH Grant, “Developing a Public Liberal Arts Humanities Curriculum: Empowering Students to Navigate an A.I. World”

Faculty based in the humanities (as defined by the NEH) are invited to participate in an NEH funded opportunity to explore humanistic approaches to generative A.I. that prepare graduates practically, ethically, and critically for what they will encounter in a rapidly changing workplace. The grant provides a modest stipend ($550) and a great CV line to four humanities faculty on each of five COPLAC campuses. To learn more, visit this link.

Our Guiding Purpose 

Evergreen’s Learning & Teaching Commons promotes a generative culture of interdisciplinary teaching and learning that is student-centered, equity-minded, inquiry-oriented, and committed to access and excellence. We aim to promote better classroom experiences that lead to increased student learning and retention. The Commons is conceived as an institutional space where faculty can cultivate practices and develop tools that will give all students the chance to excel and to meet the Six Expectations of an Evergreen graduate.
