Race, Civic Engagement, and the Project of Revitalization in Liberal Arts Education: Archeological Explorations and Contextual Audits of the Humanities in the Search for New, Transformational Terms of Democratic Participation
In 1996, University of Puget Sound completed the fundraising necessary to meet the expectations of a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant to endow a distinguished teaching professorship. The resulting professorship was named for James Dolliver, longtime Puget Sound trustee and justice of the Washington State Supreme Court. The Dolliver Professor, appointed from the faculty, serves a three-year term focused on a curricular theme of her or his choice.
The endowment supports program enhancements, faculty development seminars, and a visiting scholar (or series) for an undergraduate course in the third year of the three-year term.
