The Humanities Institute Undergraduate Engagement Group works to increase student awareness and understanding of the humanities on campus and to connect students with faculty, visitors, and other students who share an interest in the humanities.
As part of the group, you will be an integral member of the Humanities Institute team. Group members have unique opportunities to connect with our faculty and graduate student fellows, visiting scholars, artists, and staff; to learn real-world event planning, organizing skills, and social media marketing skills; and to develop an understanding of the inner workings of an academic humanities organization.
Examples of previous activity include:
- Lunch with visiting writer Yaa Gyasi
- Live-tweeting during High Stakes Culture Series
- Special guest presentations at the monthly meetings, including ones by visiting scholar of Timbuktu Shamil Jeppie and Humanities Institute Director, Professor Peggy McCracken.
