History Gateways

Faculty discussion

The American Historical Association (AHA) has received a $1.65 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to partner with the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education and 11 institutional partners to lead “History Gateways,” an evaluation and substantial revision of introductory college-level history courses to better serve students from all backgrounds and align more effectively with the future needs of a complex society.
