Newman University (Wichita, KS 67213-2084)
Cheryl Golden (Project Director: September 2019 to present)
Jamey Findling (Co Project Director: April 2020 to present)
Emphasis in Technology and Human Values Program

Newman University proposes an NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant to develop a new Emphasis in Technology and Human Values (ETHV) to address a pressing need in higher education today. Mounting evidence demonstrates that the humanities are no longer seen as vital to a university education. At the same time, the accelerating pace of technological change threatens the values needed to sustain a thriving human community. NU’s Emphasis in Technology and Human Values will address both of these concerns by offering a technology-focused integration of the humanities with some of our most popular programs. Emphasizing interdisciplinary course design, hands-on learning, and civic engagement, the ETHV will provide Newman with an innovative curricular model for introducing humanities-based skills, content, and modes of inquiry into a broad range of disciplines.
