Great Basin College Virtual Humanities Center

Acquisition of a lecture capture system through direct purchase, and endowment for a virtual humanities center by supporting faculty releases, course design, and software upgrades.

Great Basin College, located in rural Northeastern Nevada, requests support for the creation of an endowment that will sustain a Virtual Humanities Center. The overarching goal of this initiative is to broaden the education and skill-set of students, faculty, and community members while fostering a deep appreciation of our region’s complex cultural, historical, and human geography. The Center will include: 1) an interactive online portal - the “Humanities Crossroads” a place where many humanities resources converge; 2) a “Humanities Teaching Toolkit” for professional development, ongoing mentoring, and training opportunities of existing staff and faculty across all departments; and 3)an annual "Humanities in Action" series organized around an annual Theme, to provide the entire GBC community with opportunities to engage in civic conversation around significant issues of culture, place, and society.
