VU lands $1.5M grant to create humanities partnership with TSU, two others

Vanderbilt University has received an approximately $1.5 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to establish a new faculty development partnership with Tennessee State University, Tougaloo College and Berea College.

The Mellon Partners for Humanities Education initiative will support specialized training for new Vanderbilt Ph.D.s in preparing students for teaching at liberal arts colleges and historically black colleges and universities, as well as provide education regarding public and digital humanities.

In addition, grant will fund a postdoctoral and faculty exchange among the four schools that will support faculty development and undergraduate education at the partner schools.

“This program not only expands our understanding of humanities scholarship, but it invests in the faculty and students of the future,” Carolyn Dever (pictured), dean of the VU College of Arts and Science, said in a story (read here) on the vanderbilt.edu site. “Our Ph.D. alumni will benefit from focused training and teaching in diverse environments. Our partner schools will gain teaching resources, and all four schools will profit from transinstitutional exchanges of ideas and faculty. We are most grateful to the Mellon Foundation for its vision and support.”
