Welcome to the website of the Glenwood Center for Scholarship in the Humanities, a public-private partnership between the Historic Glenwood Foundation, Marshall University Graduate Humanities Program, and West Virginia State University History Program.
The Marshall University Graduate Humanities Program, the West Virginia State University History Program, and the Historic Glenwood Foundation have been working together for many years on the history of the Glenwood Estate, West Virginia, and the larger Appalachian Region. This partnership was a critical factor in establishing The Glenwood Project, a Graduate Humanities Program initiative to facilitate public engagement with the rich history of the Glenwood Estate in West Charleston. Through the auspices of the project, the Program offered several classes on the Glenwood Estate, Charleston, and the Kanawha Valley. The Glenwood Project was also the impetus for establishing the new Glenwood Center for Scholarship in the Humanities in 2014.
Ongoing collaborative programs are announced on the MU Graduate Humanities Program website.
