Hands on Tree Trunk

The University of Central Oklahoma College of Liberal Arts recently received a $360,029 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to fund programs and projects to advance diversity initiatives, as well as provide opportunities to underserved communities in the Oklahoma City metro. Central is one of two higher education institutions in the state to receive this grant.

The grant, part of the American Rescue Plan funding, is intended to assist cultural and educational institutions with recovery efforts from the economic impact of the pandemic, retain and rehire workers, and reopen sites, facilities and programs.

“This grant will enable the College of Liberal Arts to provide an expanded range of interdisciplinary learning experiences that will promote equity, increase diversity and foster inclusion within our campus community and that will transform our campus culture,” said David Macey, Ph.D., interim dean for the UCO College of Liberal Arts.
