Humanities Unbounded Duke-Durham Tech Partnership

With Humanities Unbounded, Duke has forged a partnership with Durham Technical Community College, a neighboring Minority Serving Institution the offers courses across the humanities and social sciences to a diverse population of nearly 20,000 students per year. This collaboration seeks to facilitate a two-way pedagogical engagement between Durham Tech faculty and Duke’s faculty and graduate students, sharing methods on teaching in the community college context and embedding collaborative inquiry and other research-oriented approaches into courses. Three pedagogy-focused programs have cultivated the connection between Duke and Durham Tech and supported the evolution of Durham Tech’s humanities curriculum to serve the needs of its students.
