Loyola University Maryland (Baltimore, MD 21210-2601)
Douglas B. Harris (Project Director: May 2013 to June 2019)
Messina: Loyola University Maryland's First-Year Seminar Program

Endowment for faculty salary and co-curricular programming for a first-year undergraduate seminar program.

Loyola University Maryland requests funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities to build an endowment to support humanities instruction in and humanities-based co-curricular events for Messina, its new first-year seminar program. Loyola's first-year students will participate in two linked seminar courses, one each semester, that will offer them the opportunity not only to engage deeply in disciplinary learning, but also to come to see academic and intellectual pursuits as increasingly relevant and integral to their daily lives. Increasing the size and breadth of the humanities faculty, more than quadrupling the number of first-year seminars in the humanities, and enhancing humanities programming on campus, Messina will breathe new life into humanities education, promote inter-disciplinary conversations, and enhance the intellectual culture at Loyola in and out of the classroom.
