As the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) launches a year-long celebration of its 50th anniversary, a new initiative, “The Common Good”, has been launched that is designed to demonstrate the critical role that humanities scholarship can play in our public life. A key part of the Common Good initiative is the “The Humanities in the Public Square” program.” Humanities scholars and organizations are asked to apply to the program with projects addressing a significant humanities theme that is important to a particular community, region, or state. The deadline is June 24, 2015 for projects beginning January 2016. The Common Good initiative envisions humanities scholars and organizations turning their attention and expertise to topics that have wide spread resonance with the American people and that lend themselves to humanistic methods and concerns. Applicants are strongly encouraged to forge partnerships with other institutions as appropriate (especially state humanities councils), to ensure that the scholarly, public programming, and educational elements are all well-conceived and realized. Applicants are encouraged to contact NEH program officers to discuss applications prior to their submission.

Thank you to the Spelman faculty and staff who nominated OSP for the Standards of Excellence Award! It has been a pleasure working with all of you to bring resources to the college. We strive to continually improve OSP services. We hope this means we’re on the right track. 🙂
