Mount Wachusett Community College (Gardner, MA 01440-1378)
Michelle Valois (Project Director: February 2013 to present)
MWCC Humanities Initiative

Endowment for humanities programming and interdisciplinary teaching and research in the humanities to engage MWCC students and the public in the discussion of enduring themes and ideas from the world's rich cultural and intellectual traditions.

The purpose of the MWCC Humanities Initiative Endowment is to support collaborative and interdisciplinary teaching and research in the humanities and to engage MWCC students and the north central Massachusetts region in the discussion of enduring themes and ideas from the world’s rich cultural and intellectual traditions. The endowment will fund common annual themes to be integrated across campus curricula and woven into campus and community humanities programming. The MWCC Humanities Initiative will serve as a model for humanities programming at other two-year colleges. Community college graduates are increasingly being produced in technical and career programs that have little emphasis on a liberal arts education and exposure to the humanities. An emphasis on global issues in general and introductory courses in the humanities curriculum will better prepare all graduates and expose career and technical program students in particular to global issues affecting society and workforce.
