North Texas Humanities Consortium™
The North Texas Humanities Consortium™ is the Dallas Institute’s Cowan Center™ program designed to convene and cultivate a professional community of intellectual leaders from among the Sue Rose Summer Institute alumni who create and develop humanities classes or departments in districts and schools.
The North Texas Humanities Consortium™ rises from the spirit fostered in the Summer Institutes and seeks to help members further refine their understanding and practice of the “spirit of liberal learning,” the modus operandi of the Sue Rose Summer Institute for Teachers program since its inception in 1984.
Through specially designed quarterly roundtable meetings, classes, inter-school and district visits, and through attendance and participation in Cowan Center™ signature events—the annual Cowan Center Conference™ and Education Forum™—North Texas Humanities Consortium™ members will be provided opportunities both to develop as intellectual leaders in the work and practice of the humanities in primary and secondary education and also to help shape and promote the cause of liberal learning for all in North Texas and beyond.
Alumni of the Sue Rose Summer Institutes for Teachers who are primary or secondary educators teaching or leading humanities classes or departments are eligible members. Individual, department, and school memberships are available.
