We also offer more in-depth consultations on these themes, generally with a small group of faculty and/or administrators to support them in confronting the specific challenges to the humanities on their campuses or in scaling up innovative initiatives. Through these consultations, we identify strategies that fit their institutional context, goals, and constraints and share relevant models from other campuses.
Examples of consultations include:
- A consultation with humanities department chairs from a mid-sized university on the creation of a public humanities graduate certificate program.
- A consultation with a dean of humanities and three department chairs at a large, public university about their ongoing recruitment efforts and additional strategies they might consider based on successful models from other campuses.
- A consultation with the project director of a humanities initiative about documenting the impact of their project, including review of their materials, feedback during a meeting, and sample research instruments we have developed.
