The Alexander Grass Humanities Institute is a focal point for the 10 world-renowned humanities departments at Johns Hopkins, other dynamic departments in the humanistic social sciences, and related centers and programs. The institute sponsors scholarly meetings, public events, visiting scholars, and student fellowships and research projects.
From The Hub:
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a combined $1.725 million to Johns Hopkins University and the Community College of Baltimore County to support collaborations between the two institutions on humanities curriculum and pedagogy.
The two schools will partner to implement a new initiative called Humanities for All, designed to inspire students by deepening the learning experience; enriching course content; focusing on recruitment, retention, and transfer; and strengthening faculty connections between CCBC and JHU. A Mellon Scholars Program will be established to give CCBC students research opportunities and interaction with faculty and graduate students at Johns Hopkins.
