Faculty note: Dean Rybak receives funding for Humanities collaboration

Chuck Rybak, Interim Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, is part of a team to receive a newly awarded National Endowment for the Humanities grant, led by Roopika Risam at Salem State University. The grant is called “Networking the Regional Comprehensives,” with the goal a formation of a network of digital humanities practitioners among regional comprehensive universities. The network is intended to facilitate collaboration and sharing of knowledge and resources among faculty, librarians and students across the United States at smaller universities, which offer less institutional support for computationally-intensive humanities projects.
