Renewal proposals for the President's Initiative Fund for Interdisciplinary Curricular Projects (PIF)

President Anthony W. Marx established the Presidents Initiative Fund for Interdisciplinary Curricular Projects (PIF) in 2004 to provide support for projects that focus on themes or problems that can best be understood and addressed through interdisciplinary efforts and to inform the College’s deliberations about new curricular programs and scholarship.

Mellon Faculty Workshops

The Mellon Foundation grant provides funds to support workshops designed and organized by faculty members of the Mellon 8 on scholarly and pedagogical topics. Tenured and tenure-track faculty members may propose workshops to be held during the spring 2007, summer 2007, and the 2007-2008 academic year. The workshops may be relatively small. For example, six Latin Americanists from Amherst, Pomona, Wesleyan, and Williams might gather for three days to discuss the latest trends in that field and how those trends have had an impact on teaching about Latin America.
