We have been researching the field of undergraduate humanities recruitment for more than a year now, identifying compelling initiatives, effective strategies, and leaders in the field. The pandemic, severely strained budgets, and the national reckoning with racial injustice are changing the context in which colleges and universities grapple with strategies for recruiting students to the humanities. In this webinar, humanities center directors will offer their perspectives on emerging opportunities to elevate undergraduate humanities education on their campuses through curricular and programmatic initiatives.
