About the Engaged Humanities Initiative

The Engaged Humanities Initiative is a new program at UIC funded by a grant from the Mellon Foundation. It is a four-year path for undergraduates that leads from exciting freshman seminars to research projects developed with a UIC faculty mentor. More broadly, it offers the opportunity to create a community of students and faculty members interested in exploring how the humanities can help us imagine new approaches, and even solutions, to the urgent problems facing the world today.
