UMBC’s Dresher Center for the Humanities and College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) introduce the Inclusion Imperative, a major five-year initiative to promote diversity and inclusive excellence in the humanities, made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

UMBC, in partnership with Bowie State University, Coppin State University, and Howard University, will cultivate a regional network of scholars, who are committed to diversity and inclusion in the humanities. These fundamental partnerships will guide the development and implementation of the Inclusion Imperative’s three programs: the Diversity Teaching Network in the Humanities, the Visiting Faculty Fellowship Program, and the Humanities Teaching Labs. Through these programs, the Inclusion Imperative will support and expand community-engaged humanities research, teaching, and learning focused on issues of equity, inclusion, and justice.
