Change or Be Changed: Designing Solutions for Challenges Facing the Humanities and Social Sciences

Thursday, February 10, 2022 | 4 – 5:30 PM ET

What can we do to help humanistic studies thrive?  In the Luce Design Workshop at ACLS, teams from six schools developed practical solutions to the challenges we face, from declining undergraduate enrollments to faculty diversification. Our lesson: great experiments are going on around the country, but change must be ambitious, connected, systemic, and swift. This event showcases their results and sets the stage for further exchange and collaboration.

The aim of the event is to make our work visible, to invite collaboration and exchange with others trying to bring about change in the academy, and to determine together what collaborative work is needed (transcending any single organization or initiative) to bring about systemic change.
