The Cleveland Humanities Collaborative (CHC) is pleased to announce its 2021 cohort of graduate Mellon Fellows, who will collaborate with faculty mentors from Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) to explore teaching careers in the community college environment.

This year’s CHC Mellon Fellows include:

  • Alison Harber (Anthropology), mentored by Professor Donya Waugh
  • Andrew Petracca (English), mentored by Professor Brian Hall
  • Taylor McClaskie and Madelaine Matej MacQueen (Musicology), mentored by Professor Kira Seaton

Graduate students who complete HUMN 422: Humanities Teaching Careers in Community Colleges are eligible to apply for the competitive Fellows program. Humanities 422 is co-taught by CWRU and Tri-C faculty in the fall of each academic year and introduces participants to the mission of community colleges, their student population, and best practices for teaching and learning in an open access institution. The Fall 2020 offering is co-led by Professor Kim Emmons and Professor Nathan Kruse at CWRU, and Professor Derrick Williams and Professor Christine Wolken at Tri-C.
