The Great Works Academic Certificate (GWAC) program has been awarded a grant of $150,000 from the Teagle Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities to make core texts in the humanities more widely read by UNLV students. The grant program is called Cornerstone: Learning for Living. Co-principal investigators on the project are David Fott of political science, director of GWAC, and John Hay of English. GWAC is advised by a committee of 13 faculty, whose names may be found on the GWAC website. Much of the grant will be used for a postdoctoral fellowship and a series of guest speakers. The dean's office of the College of Liberal Arts will provide supporting funding.
