Virginia Union University Awarded $25,000 “Transformative Texts” Initiative Humanities Grant

    Virginia Union University has been awarded a $25,000 Cornerstone: Learning for Living grant by the Southern Education Foundation (SEF) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). We offer a special thanks to Dr. Denise Janssen, Associate Professor of Christian Education, and Dr. Tim Wenzell, Professor of English for their work in helping to secure the grant. And, to the broad investment and vision of VUU's Transdisciplinary Faculty Work Group.


     The goal of the “Transformative Texts” initiative is to revitalize the role of the humanities in general education. VUU will explore how best to infuse the humanities into every student’s college experience through purposeful engagement. The 2021-2022 academic year will be used for discovery, planning, and outlining the strategy to enhance our curriculum.  

     VUU’s strong liberal arts curriculum offers students a broader intellectual foundation filled with critical thinking, research, and discovery. The University advances the liberal arts with well-established programs in humanities, fine arts, and related fields across all degree-granting schools at VUU.
