Project Beginnings - Faculty Development January 2011 - December 2012

In January 2011, Capital Community College was awarded a Humanities Initiatives grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities, a grant that was recognized by the NEH under their "Bridging Cultures" and "We the People" initiatives.

With this support, a team of fourteen Capital faculty members embarked on a study program that included seventeen full-day seminars on the Hartford’s arts, culture, and history. The readings, information, and relationships fostered in these seminars have enabled the Hartford Heritage team to create and implement a variety of new courses for Capital students that make Hartford an extension of the classroom.

The faculty team consisted of: Femi Bogle-Assegai, Anna Marie Basche, Antoinette Brim, John Christie, Ken Dimaggio, Carl Guerriere, Arthur Hernandez, Kevin Lamkins, Marcus Lawson, Jeffrey Partridge, Daniela Ragusa, Minati Roychoudhuri, Peggy Schuyler, Jennifer Thomassen, and Pedro Valentin.
