Spanish Professor Receives NEH Grant

    April 4, 2019

    World Languages and Cultures professor Ana Ugarte has received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant for her project "Health Humanities Concentration and Community Based Learning at The University of Scranton."

    As mentioned in her proposal, this grant will allow her "to create a Health Humanities Concentration that will emphasize the integral role of the humanities in transforming healthcare, health and well-being. It aims not only at providing a more comprehensive education to the students enrolled in the programs for the health professions at The University of Scranton, but also seeks to develop new pedagogical practices informed by interdisciplinarity, community-based learning, and diversity and intercultural competence." 

    This NEH grant has only a 15 percent funding radio: Only 23 institutions received this grant this year.
