Pacific University (Forest Grove, OR 97116-1797)
Michael Geraci (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Educating for Student Success: Preserving at-risk humanities positions impacted by the coronavirus at Pacific University

The retention of 14 humanities teaching positions in philosophy, English, and world languages.

We request personnel costs (salaries and fringe benefits) for at-risk humanities faculty teaching positions in the School of Arts and Humanities at Pacific University for Fall 2020. Without this support, we anticipate that these positions would need to be eliminated due to the severe impact of the coronavirus pandemic on our budget. The proposed activities are to teach courses in disciplines from the humanities to undergraduate students attending Pacific University. At the heart of our mission is the commitment to provide excellence in teaching for our students. Without support for these positions, we will be unable to offer the array of courses necessary for our students to advance toward the completion of the requirements for their major, their minors, and their required general education curriculum, and our capacity to serve the community through these programs and advance the humanities will be diminished.
