Community College Humanities Education and Local Engagement

A three-year project involving a series of curricular development activities that would incorporate the resources from local historical and cultural institutions in Richmond, Virginia, into humanities courses at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College.

The proposed project would strengthen teaching in community college humanities courses by developing best practices for fostering relationships with and incorporating resources from local historic sites, art museums, cultural institutions, and religious organizations. Eight faculty Fellows from Reynolds in history, literature, art, humanities, and religion will work collaboratively throughout the project to help each other develop and disseminate local humanities resources, interdisciplinary approaches, assignments, and content--all aimed at strengthening humanities instruction, content, and transforming the engagement between students, faculty, and the local community. Fellows will work with local Scholars, who will present seminars on Richmond history (including women’s and African-American history), local art, literature, culture, and religion followed by visits to local organizations and institutions.
