Faculty at both institutions are the heart of the Cleveland Humanities Collaborative. The program seeks to establish strong relationships between faculty at Tri-C and CWRU, knowing that our collaborations will support students in their academic and career goals. We are all champions of humanistic study and serve as enthusiastic advocates of its benefits.
There are multiple ways that faculty can be involved in the CHC. You can bring students to events, welcome CHC representatives and mentors into your classes, attend events both large and small, speak at gatherings about the program, or enlist your colleagues in the work.
Faculty at both institutions can offer to guest lecture in a class, or request a guest lecturer for their class. If you’re interested in either option, please email Allison Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re a Tri-C faculty member:
