The Cleveland Humanities Collaborative (CHC), generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is a partnership between Tri-C and CWRU to promote Tri-C student transfer to CWRU to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in any of CWRU’s humanities fields. The CHC’s mission is to support student academic progress towards transfer to CWRU, strengthen faculty collaborations, and promote the humanities in northeastern Ohio.  With the CHC, reaching your goals is as easy as ABC!

If you are a Tri-C student with a passion for the humanities working on an associate’s degree, the CHC offers a great opportunity for you to pursue your four-year degree through a program that will advise and mentor you, introduce you to CWRU’s community, and invite you to engage in special access programming. As a CHC Scholar at CWRU, you will have access to stipends to support your transition and academic program.
