To create a sustained and integrated system of support, training, and research implementation that will not simply ‘bring DH to Claremont,’ but will make the consortium a model community of learning where digital humanities methods and tools inform the work of humanities scholars and students at all levels.
– Mellon Grant Proposal
In November 2016, the DH team crafted the following vision statement to describe how the team will carry out this mission and what kind of community we hope to build:
DH@CC is an open, inclusive community that welcomes all members of the Claremont Colleges, regardless of their status or position. It is collaborative, affirming, transformative, and provides space to experiment, fail, learn, and grow. This community brings faculty, students, librarians, and staff together to produce and share knowledge as well as scholarship that meet the high academic standards of the colleges.
