April 24, 2018 – Washington State University (WSU), which houses Partnerships for Native Health, was recently awarded a small grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support an initiative entitled “Reimagining the 21st Century Land Grant PhD.” This interdisciplinary project will convene a group of faculty, staff, and graduate students at WSU, who will consider how graduate education in the humanities can better support the university’s mission of improving access to resources, inclusion of population groups, and democratic engagement. Members of Partnership for Native Health will be part of the group.

Other participants include Ryan Booth, a graduate student in history and an enrolled member of the Upper Skagit Tribe. “Innovation is the key to human experience,” Mr. Booth said, “and I’m excited to participate in this creative process.” For more information on the new initiative, see this article in the WSU Insider.
