2023 Foundation Conversation

October 16, 2023, 3:00 pm Virtual Event

Building Community-Focused Humanities Projects

CIC is hosting a virtual conversation on Monday, October 16, at 3:00 p.m. ET with Raymond Foxworth, program director for Indigenous Knowledge at the Henry Luce Foundation, and Carol Peters, director of the Division of Education Programs at the National Endowment for the Humanities. The presentations will focus on building grant-funded humanities initiatives, particularly those that create mutually beneficial partnerships and elevate the voices and expertise of communities underrepresented in higher education.

Please note: This webinar will not be recorded.

Henry Luce Foundation logo

The Henry Luce Foundation seeks to enrich public discourse by promoting innovative scholarship, cultivating new leaders, and fostering international understanding. Established in 1936 by Henry R. Luce, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Time, Inc., the Luce Foundation advances its mission through grantmaking and leadership programs in the fields of Asia, higher education, religion and theology, art, and public policy.

National Endowment for the Humanities logo

Created in 1965 as an independent federal agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation.

Who Should Participate?

This event is open to administrators, faculty members, and staff members at CIC member institutions. Those who lead community-engaged projects are especially invited to participate.

​This webinar is offered free of charge to all CIC member institutions. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

Foundation Conversation at the 2023 Institute for Chief Academic Officers: Championing the Liberal Arts

CIC is also hosting a session at this year’s Institute for Chief Academic Officers on Monday, November 6, featuring presentations from Michael Murray, president of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations (AVDF), and Loni Bordoloi Pazich, program director at the Teagle Foundation. This session will focus on foundation grantmaking that supports the liberal arts, and the presentations will provide a behind-the-scenes look at foundation priorities and upcoming trends as well as insights on how CIC member institutions can best tell the stories of their institutions and their impact on students.

Who Should Participate?

Anyone who has registered for the 2023 Institute for Chief Academic Officers, taking place on November 4–7 in Tampa, Florida, is welcome to join this session. We anticipate that Chief Academic Officers and Chief Advancement Officers will be especially interested in this session, as AVDF and Teagle have a long history of supporting smaller, independent liberal arts colleges and universities.  

Register for the Institute today to secure your spot and discounted hotel rate, and don’t forget to add the Foundation Conversation to your agenda.
