We have a commitment to our higher education institutions being social escalators…Dr. Antoinette Burton
The most significant challenge in higher education is the fact that finance has a huge interest in perpetuating the unsustainability of higher ed the way that it is…Jason Mierek
I worry as someone whose life has been enhanced by working on a PhD in the humanities, and doing that type of research, and expanding my own knowledge, that we are going to be limiting access to education for historically underserved populations…Maggie Nettesheim-Hoffman
The beauty of Humanities Without Walls is, is that it gives a sense of individual agency to graduate students when those sort of structural things aren’t necessarily in place in every PhD program. It gives students a toolkit to take advantage of whatever opportunities are around on their own campus or across the country.Peggy Brennan
