Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1981 
9 p. 

Since spring 1979 numerous changes in Humanities offerings and operations have been discussed, agreed upon, and implemented at Clark College to revitalize enrollments and increase faculty energy levels. The process of change was based upon four principles: (1) the faculty perceived the need to change, wanted to explore the potential benefits of changing, and were willing to help initiate the changes; (2) the administration encouraged faculty-initiated change, provided resources necessary for a faculty retreat, and participated in discussions when invited; (3) ample opportunity was provided for faculty to air their concerns about proposed changes and to reach consensus in an open rational environment; and (4) a systematic marketing effort promoted the Humanities in general as well as specific new offerings. Among the activities and programs resulting from these efforts are the following: the formation of a lay advisory committee; the operation of a National Endowment for the Humanities consultancy; several new interdisciplinary courses; quarterly faculty seminars; a cross faculty resource bank; a cooperative work experience program in English Writing, Art, Graphics, and Photography; an Honors Degree Program; and the use of a modularized approach to the foreign language curriculum. These projects and others springing from the revitalization of faculty energy bode well for the future role of the Humanities at Clark. (AYC)
