Description

The Global Arts + Humanities is pleased to announce that Faculty Director Wendy S. Hesford has received the President and Provost's Award for Distinguished Faculty Service. The award recognizes up to three faculty members annually for their “contributions to the development and implementation of university policies and programs through non-administrative roles, while continuing to teach and pursue scholarship.”

Hesford has said that GAHDT is “committed to engaging the idea and practices of discovery in ways that promote ethical scholarship and reflexive methodologies across disciplines.” The goal of the program is to “invest in cross-disciplinary collaborations that amplify the integration of the arts and humanities to drive social change.” Hesford says that “Serving in this role has revitalized her commitment to advocate for meaningful structural support for humanistic research that advances cultural and historical understandings of societal challenges.”
