Grant funds for collaborations and research projects in the humanities and arts focused on justice, equality, and community will not only catalyze student studies in the humanities, but will support transformative work already happening in partner organizations. Such projects should be created in partnership with Davidson’s Center for Civic Engagement and involve reciprocal partnership with community organizations like Levine Museum of the New South, Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Culture, UNG-Charlotte Urban Institute.
Examples of faculty-staff-student collaborations and projects could include:
- Planning and leading a conference for local college students on justice, equality, and community with local community leaders;
- Supporting students who want to perform action-based research (over the summer or as part of a course) as defined by a community partner;
- Students in a given course collaborating with a community leader to host a civic dialogue around a pressing local issue;
- Students collaborating with a local museum to curate an exhibit related to their studies.
Staff must have written permission from their supervisors to initiate and/or participate in grant related or funded activities. Faculty seeking staff participation must be sure that each staff member has received permission from his or her supervisor.
Students must have a faculty or staff sponsor to submit a proposal.
