Securing the Common Good: Hull-House History at the University of Illinois at Chicago

A two-year project that seeks to integrate the Jane Adams Hull House Museum and its history of social reform into the university curriculum and bring the humanities to public service fields.

“Securing the Common Good” is a two-year initiative designed to strengthen the teaching and learning of the humanities at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and expand the reach of the campus’ most significant humanities resource, the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (JAHHM). Through a year long seminar for faculty in the humanities and social sciences, the creation of new teaching modules, and the development of a new undergraduate course, the history and philosophies of the Hull-House Settlement will be integrated into curricula across the UIC campus as never before.
