Examples of Digital Scholarship
Colleges Partnering with Communities
The Colleges Partnering with Communities Project consists of an inter-campus network of undergraduate courses at six liberal arts colleges across the Southern region: Fisk University, Centre College, Rollins College, the University of Richmond, the University of the South, and Washington and Lee University. Our students are partnering this academic year with representatives of local communities of color who have deep historical links to our respective campuses. The students and community groups are jointly developing online exhibits, archives, and other locally oriented projects that explore those connections and confront the history and legacies of racial inequities in our shared communities.
