Humanities 2020 Mellon Foundation Grant

Chicago Humanities Festival

The Chicago Humanities Festival presents year-long programming that connects people to ideas and to thinkers who are at the center of contemporary civic and cultural conversations, including those on racism. Humanities 2020 partners with CHF to enhance public access to the research and intellectual contributions of Lake Forest College faculty and grant partners. Some collaborations include: 

  • Krebs Provost and Dean of the Faculty Davis Schneiderman appeared as a panelist in “Chicago Neighborhood Check-in: Higher Education” with faculty from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Kennedy-King College.  The panel participants discussed the role of colleges and universities as neighbors and institutional citizens in a time of crisis.
