Humanists study the stories of humanity, in all their wonderful and tragic manifestations. The annual “Celebrating the Humanities” event is an opportunity for you to participate in this never-ending exploration of what it means to be human.
I hope you will be able to join me on Tuesday, May 31 from 4-6 pm at Cowell Provost House. Activities will include a poster presentation by the recipients of our Humanities Undergraduate Research Awards, remarks by student scholarship recipients, and last but not least – refreshments on the lawn.
Humanities Division’s 2015-16 awards acknowledge those who have achieved special recognition, distinctions and honors over the course of this last year. The categories for acknowledgement are:
Faculty Awards and Honors
Research Grants and Fellowships
Teaching Awards and Instructional Innovation Major Publications
Undergraduate Awards and Honors
Humanities Undergraduate Research Awards (HUGRA) – supports and encourages undergraduate research in the Humanities
Dean’s and Chancellor’s Awards – granted to undergraduates who have completed an outstanding senior thesis or project during the current academic year
This year, the Humanities Division is a proud sponsor of the 2016 Annual Chancellor’s Achievement Awards for Diversity (CAAFD). Established in 2003, these awards honor and showcase people and programs that have made outstanding contributions to furthering diversity, inclusion, and excellence at UC Santa Cruz.
I look forward to seeing you in May.
Dean of Humanities
