SRU’s Humanities Ladder receives Grable Foundation grant

The Stone House Center for Public Humanities at Slippery Rock University has received a $45,000 Grable Foundation Public Schools Grant to expand and enhance its ongoing Humanities Ladder initiative.

SRU's Humanities Ladder program, a 10-week initiative that launched in fall 2015, introduces underserved high school students at Aliquippa High School to topics not normally covered at the high school level, including: art history, gender studies and philosophy.

The ultimate goal of the program is to help students develop a love of humanities and find motivation to attend college.
