Professor Cindy Rose, associate professor of humanities, conceived a way to spotlight both the liberal arts at HACC and the talents of our faculty in a fun, interactive way. Professor Rose did this by creating the Annual Humanities Symposium.

In March 2018, HACC’s Lancaster Campus hosted the symposium for the fifth year. These symposia have featured cross-disciplinary topics, including ecology, Frankenstein, free speech, the future and Shakespeare.

For many HACC students, prior exposure to the arts and humanities has been limited. Moreover, when attending HACC, students often only encounter these disciplines because of general education requirements.

Over five years ago, Professor Rose approached Lancaster Campus administration about sponsoring a multi-day celebration of the humanities. The campus loved the idea and essentially charged her with bringing the concept to reality. Professor Rose immediately formed a committee of fellow faculty members to organize the event. However, Professor Rose completed the lion’s share of the planning by selecting the theme, recruiting presenters, creating publicity flyers, conducting research, encouraging fellow faculty to bring students, engaging with outside groups and presenters, setting up a companion art exhibit and handling event logistics during the symposium. Professor Rose has provided a similar level of commitment and grit during the last three years.

The Humanities Symposium has grown throughout its existence. The first one on Frankenstein drew around 400 participants and featured about a dozen presenters. The 2017 program on Shakespeare attracted over 600 participants and nearly 20 presenters, including a pop-up Shakespeare performance group. We have also watched as other campuses have picked up and adapted the concept and brought the arts and humanities in a bigger way to the College as a whole.

In bringing the Humanities Symposium to the college community and the public at large, Professor Rose has exhibited significant leadership and the power of one individual with a good idea being able to make a big impact. Importantly, she has consistently put in the sweat equity to make each and every symposium a success.

Professor Michelle “Mick” Teti-Beaudin, an English professor, has demonstrated personal initiative, resourcefulness and leadership in support of HACC's mission as an inclusive and diverse institution.

Professor Teti-Beaudin has engaged in deep and expansive diversity training. She has infused her teaching with principles of social justice. Further, she has shared her expertise with the department via a departmental newsletter and a brief departmental workshop. From these initiatives, a collegewide initiative has been born – The English Department Anti-Racism Reading Group, which will invite dialogue and discourse on a particular text from all corners of the institution.

Professor Teti-Beaudin will use a portion of the award to fund a speaker or create a workshop. If funds allow, she is considering creating a student film trip on racism. Another possible idea would be to create a film series on campus to explore institutional racism. In addition, a screening and panel discussion would take place. In summer 2018, Professor Teti-Beaudin will attend the second chapter of the Cultural Bridges to Justice training program.
