In the Media: Lara Tiedens Discusses Scripps’ Public Humanities Clinics in The Agile College

President Lara Tiedens discusses Scripps’ public humanities clinics in Nathan D. Grawe’s new book, The Agile College, which explores higher education’s strategies for adapting to shifting projected enrollment. The book highlights clinics such as those supported by the Mellon Interdisciplinary Humanities Initiative, in which students use a humanities-based lens to explore solutions to widespread challenges, from homelessness to environmental issues. “If you start from the perspective of the human experience and basic human concerns about life,” Tiedens says, “how does that help to understand the problem—what the causes are and what different types of solutions might be?”
