Humanities Learning Center
The Humanities Learning Center (HLC) is a group of dedicated faculty working alongside administrative, support staff, and community partners whose mission is to bring the relevance and vitality of the humanities to the Great Lakes Bay Region. This group is coordinated by Dr. Laura Dull, Associate Professor of History. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to accomplish this mission we have programming for current college students, middle and high school students, as well as the community at large.
For Students Entering Grades 6-9: Exploring Our Humanity! Summer Camp, July 15-18. Explore the experience of the Black Plague, produce your own television show, create and publish a multimedia poem to YouTube, and much, much more!
Explore the human response to the Black Death. Make your own Studio Production. Celebrate Christmas in July. Explore all the course options and register through our Lifelong Learning office.
Jump Start Your College Career with Two Humanities Credits! For Students in Grades 10-12: IHU 296, Introduction to the Humanities, June 24-27.
Spend two days on campus at the end of June and learn about six humanities and humanities-related disciplines. Then, through the Fall and Winter semesters, apply what you've learned in an individual and a group project that takes you into your community to evaluate local humanities programming and marketing. Mini-course options for June 2013 include: "Economics and Honesty," and "Civility and the Sexes."
