Partners in Public History: Training Students and Engaging Communities

A public history program that includes undergraduate courses; partnerships with immigrant community organizations (including internships); and a National History Day mentorship program for middle school students.


The History Department at Saint Mary’s College of California seeks a Humanities Access grant to engage in the study and practice of Public History. It is embarking on a three-part program: 1) new undergraduate courses introducing students to Public History theory and practice through coursework, research, and public presentation; 2) partnerships with Asian-American and LatinX immigrant community organizations including internships providing direct services and a digital humanities project for the primary benefit of the organizations; and 3) a History Day mentorship program introducing middle-school children to historical inquiry and research and to the prospect of college attendance. The project will primarily benefit young adults; it will also benefit families and youth associated with community partners; and middle-school children (age 12-14) in partner schools.
