New England Humanities Consortium
New England Humanities Consortium (NEHC) promotes intellectual collaboration, interdisciplinary exchange, and innovative educational programming for faculty, students, and the regional, national and global communities they serve. The founding institutions include: Amherst College, Colby College, Dartmouth College, Northeastern University, Tufts University, University of Connecticut, University of New Hampshire, University of Rhode Island, University of Vermont, Wellesley College, and Wheaton College. The NEHC was established in 2018 with the support of a $100,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the participating institutions. The Mellon grant supported initial pilot programing and assist in the development of administrative practices as well as future projects in fields such as history, literature and philosophy. UConn Humanities Institute in Storrs, Connecticut is the executive and administrative hub of the NEHC through 2020.
We are a partner in the Constitutionally Speaking project founded by Justice David Souter and providing resources on the teaching of civics to New Hampshire educators. Access those resources on the Constitutionally Speaking website.
Teacher Institutes & Workshops
Summer institutes and workshops funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities support faculty development programs in the humanities for school teachers and for college and university teachers. NEH summer seminars and institutes may be as short as two weeks or as long as five weeks. NEH summer seminars and institutes extend and deepen knowledge and understanding of the humanities by focusing on significant topics and texts, contribute to the intellectual vitality and professional development of participants, build communities of inquiry and provide models of civility and excellent scholarship and teaching, and link teaching and research in the humanities.
