We are pleased to announce that CCHA has been awarded funding to begin planning a project aimed at outreach to high school students. The project, “What Does It Mean to be Human Today?”, will see a series of two-week seminars held at five colleges across the country. The five colleges are the Community College of Baltimore County in Baltimore, Maryland; Monroe Community College in Rochester, New York; Collin Community College in McKinney, Texas; San Diego Mesa College in San Diego, California; and Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan.
The Teagle grant funds the planning of the seminars, which will take place in October of 2019. More information on the seminars will be posted as we have it. For now, we would like to congratulate those involved in the planning process and the five schools that will be participating in the project.

This past summer, Executive Director Rusnak and Deputy Executive Director Campbell were invited to join a group faculty from four-year institutions and “access-oriented institutions” (identified by the Modern Language Association as “community colleges and other colleges that prioritize access over selectivity in admissions”) to design a grant-funded program that will offer doctoral students and instructors who work at access-oriented institutions the opportunity to participate in regional week-long seminars focused on Reading-Writing Pedagogy. It is a pleasure to announce that Mellon has funded this program, and further information is now available through the MLA’s news site. Additionally, we would like to congratulate our colleagues at the planning retreat and thank Paula Krebs, Executive Director of the MLA, for her excellent leadership on this endeavor.
