The Nonprofit Fellows are a select group of students who earn a minor in Nonprofit Studies through a semester-long immersion experience. The 20 - 25 Nonprofit Fellows are enrolled in the three courses and complete a 6-credit internship. The program is offered by the School of Integrative Studies in partnership with the Schar School of Policy and Government.
The African and African American Studies Program and Student Engagement for Racial Justice are excited to be hosting an active workshop on the history of voter’s suppression and contextualizing its current presence in Black and Brown communities. 'The Black Vote: A Guide to Navigating the 2020 Election' will serve as an opportunity for students to create their own personalized voting plan, which will help them navigate the many barriers that exist today. Participants will receive a “Black GMU Votes” face mask along with a digital “Voter’s Toolkit.”
The event will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 6:30pm via Zoom. Students can register here https://bit.ly/3o91mZs.
The Center for Humanities Research is accepting applications for our “residential" fellowships (faculty and graduate) for Spring 2021. While we do intend for this to be a residential fellowship post-pandemic, there’s no expectation that this first spring cohort will have to work on campus. Nevertheless, we will ask fellows to be actively involved in the virtual life of the Center, including giving talks/presenting research.
The Center’s theme for 2020-1 is “Dissent," inspired both by the passing of Justice Ginsburg, and by the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement, which reminds us daily, and with urgency, how crucial dissent is to our democracy and to the ongoing struggle for racial justice.
