New Scholar Series Criteria for Evaluation

Criteria for Evaluation

In the decision-making process, the C3 Executive Committee will give attention to funding a variety of disciplines from the humanities or humanistic social sciences at a range of institutions. In addition, it will consider the following questions:

  • What impact would this curricular area have on the institution?
  • What is the likelihood of a tenure-track search in the department or program within the current academic year or the following academic year?
  • Will the proposed activity provide the institution with sufficient information about the New Scholars and give the New Scholars a positive experience of a liberal arts college?
  • Are the visit logistics feasible?
  • Is the budget reasonable and within the parameters set by C3?
  • As reflected in the CAO’s letter, has the department or program engaged a diverse student or faculty body? This may include efforts at student mentoring or diversifying the curriculum.
  • Is there evidence that the event will include scholars of color or others underrepresented in higher education?
  • Has the institution previously participated in C3 or LADO events?
  • Does the preliminary participant list include students from C3’s R1 partner institutions?
