NHA regularly partners with higher ed institutions and community-based organizations to document the impact of humanities initiatives on participating students, faculty, and community members. These initiatives have ranged from a new undergraduate humanities course to internship programs to large-scale public humanities projects. We work closely with each partner to learn about their goals, determine the appropriate research method to employ, and design and implement a research instrument (e.g., surveys, focus groups, interviews).
We also work with humanities funders to develop tailored toolkits for their grantees to document the impact of their work.
We also leverage our experience as an advocacy organization to help our partners showcase the impact of their initiatives to campus-based administrators, community stakeholders, policy makers, and funders.
