Ana Ugarte

Congratulations to Romance Studies graduate alumna, Ana Ugarte who was awarded the NEH Humanities Connections Grant for the project A Health Humanities Concentration and Community Based Leaning.  This grant will fund the creation of a Health Humanities program at The University of Scranton that will emphasize the integral role of the humanities in transforming healthcare, health, and well-being. It aims not only at providing a more comprehensive education to the students enrolled in the programs for the health professions, but also seeks to develop new pedagogical practices informed by interdisciplinarity, community-based learning, and diversity and intercultural competence.
