Provost Initiative Videos
Following a successful call for proposals for the Provost Initiative on Understanding and Engaging with Extremism, we recieved 18 proposals. Eight proposals were ultimately selected addressing the following issues:
- Confront the denial of our common humanity;
- Confront the denial of science; or
- Broaden experiential learning and critical inquiry in general education courses.
Principal Investigators of each project will explain how they are confronting extremism, and why. Let's start with an introduction to our video project, courtesy of Vice Provost Douglas Haynes.
