Penn State Berks faculty receive major grant to elevate undergraduate education

FACULTY SPOTLIGHT:

Faculty in the CAS Department at Penn State Berks, who also teach occasional online classes for University Park and World Campus, have received a major grant to elevate undergraduate education. Specifically, E. Michele Ramsey and Cheryl L. Nicholas were awarded a $350,000 grant from the Teagle Foundation and the NEH to implement the Berks Keystone Certificate at 6 additional Penn State campuses, including University Park. As part of the Teagle/NEH Cornerstone Learning for Living initiative, the certificate offers the micro-credential to non-humanities students using only General Education requirements. The goal of the certificate is to encourage students to consider how their majors and future careers engage and impact humanity while also increasing enrollments in humanities courses. 

Congratulations, Michele and Cheryl!
