The Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) is undergoing a new data project to gather “quantitative and qualitative information about the status of architectural history as a field in higher education”. You are invited to take part in their upcoming survey, which will be available on the main SAH Data Project Page, HERE. In addition, be sure to check out the blog post “Four Questions for a Community College Architectural History Instructor” while you’re there. This Mellon-supported project is scheduled to be completed in December of 2020. More information will be forthcoming as the project progresses.
Should you have any questions or be interested in further information, you can feel free to contact the project’s researcher, Sarah M. Dreller, at email@example.com.

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.
