Researching Our Pasts

The Contextualization and Commemoration Initiative unit supports scholarly research on all aspects of our institution’s history. This research is grounded in the value of scholarship as a tool of public education to educate our students as well as the general public about our institution’s lesser-known past. Research also guides and supports the development of all our commemoration and contextualization efforts.

To help achieve this agenda, faculty, on an application basis, were granted funds to conduct research. Outcomes from these faculty-led studies will be available on this webpage as well as represented in campus commemorative projects.
