Limited Capacity seats available

The LaGuardia Mellon Humanities Scholars program is an extracurricular program of the CUNY Humanities Alliance. Its goal is to enrich LaGuardia students’ understanding of the Humanities, and help them build academic and career pathways in the Humanities. Humanities Scholars design and create individual projects that connect their personal interests, scholarly pursuits, and career goals. Through biweekly meetings and additional humanities enrichment activities, the Humanities Scholars are exposed to modes of critical and creative thinking, various historical and cultural perspectives, and aesthetic appreciation. With the student at the center, this group determines what they need to succeed to towards graduation and their future careers.

Previous Humanities Scholars will share their experiences in the program and a bit about their individual project work, and the co-facilitators will share some of their methods. Mostly, we are excited to engage in a conversation with participants about how extracurricular programs can help build communities, engage students, and open up new worlds for community college students. We want to hear about experiences that you've had at your schools, and compare notes!
