University of St. Francis (Joliet, IL 60435-6169)
Daniel C. Hauser (Project Director: September 2019 to present)
University of St. Francis Pathways First-Year Curriculum

This Humanities Connections Planning Grant will allow University of St. Francis (USF) faculty and administration to develop a program that shows students the links between the humanities and other disciplines, increases their achievement outcomes, and develops skills employers are looking for while enhancing the vital role of the humanities at USF. This Planning Grant will refocus general education requirements to include four different Pathways representing USF’s four guiding values: Service, Respect, Compassion and Integrity. Each Pathway will require a total of 6 courses (existing, revised, and new options) that are thematically linked with experiential and service learning components. Faculty in disciplines including philosophy, history, theology, business and health administration, economics, and education will play a role in this project. Benchmarks are set for this planning project and upon implementation all incoming freshmen will participate in the Pathways program.
