Past Public Humanities Programs

Collaborative Arts Teaching Program

Teatro Tour Spring, '15

From 2016-2019, awards of up to $4,000 were given to UCSB faculty members for visual and performing art projects housed within undergraduate or graduate courses. Awardees engaged with a community partner in conceiving, designing, and executing projects that were significant to a particular community. Partners included non-UCSB community groups in Isla Vista and in the Santa Barbara region. Awards were used to seed projects for existing courses or as the basis for creating a new course with a community-engaged component.

Community-Engaged Projects on Campus

This list of community-engaged projects and courses at UCSB was compiled in 2016-17 and was supported by a UCHRI Humanities Center Collaboration Grant. It is intended to serve as a resource for UCSB faculty and students who are interested in community-engaged research and teaching and would like to learn more about what types of projects have happened on campus. For inquiries about community-engaged projects, please contact IHC Executive Director Erin Nerstad.
