Mellon Humanities Grant | St. Lawrence University

Mellon Humanities Grant


In 2012, St. Lawrence was awarded a $700,000 grant from the Mellon Foundation for a five-year project, “Crossing Boundaries: Re-envisioning Humanities for the 21st Century,” with the understanding and belief that certain forms of knowledge can no longer be isolated, and that issues we confront today as humans compel us to think across traditional boundaries. In addition, a contemporary liberal education requires competency in multiple modes of discourse, with visual and media literacies increasingly as important as oral and textual literacies.
