The initiative for Community-Engaged Intensives in the Humanities (CEIH), funded by the Mellon Foundation, aims to foster and support the development of intensives that cultivate long-lasting, equitable collaborations between our campus and people and organizations in the city of Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, and the Hudson Valley. (The “Humanities” includes arts, languages, humanistic social sciences, and multidisciplinary collaborations.) Community-Engaged Intensives in the Humanities are envisioned as innovative learning opportunities that will complement more traditional courses by extending the humanities beyond the classroom into faculty-mentored experiences that require a high level of student agency and independence. Instructors are invited to develop Intensives to fit their own areas of expertise, to respond to student interests and project proposals, and to address specific community needs and opportunities.
