Baker-Nord Scholars Program
The mission of the Baker-Nord Scholars program is to help humanities students identify their academic passions and pursue their life goals by integrating incoming students into the life of the humanities community at CWRU. The program offers our scholars the experience of a small liberal arts college within the setting of a world-class research university. It is intended to supplement their experiences within the department of their future major and to foster interdisciplinary connections across the campus and the community.
The mission on Humanities@Work is to connect Case Western Reserve University humanities students with corporate, government, nonprofit, and other partners through community discussions, networking events and paid career opportunities. Humanities@Work is a nationally recognized initiative which the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities began in 2016 in collaboration with Postgraduate Planning and Experiential Education, the Office of Corporate Relations, and the Dean’s Office of the College of Arts and Sciences.
