Creating Spaces for Collaboration

Humanities Commons has been an inspiration for us at Northeastern University. With a growing global campus network, and with numerous interdisciplinary initiatives and an active spirit of collaboration at the university, we adopted the Humanities Commons model and underlying software to enable and encourage the kinds of interactions we think will greatly improve higher education.

Taking a page from the Commons, we have created affinity groups within disciplines and between disciplines, and faculty, students, and staff are now able to converse, share documents and ideas, and sense a community that is working together toward new models of learning and scholarship. We deeply appreciate Humanities Commons‘ pioneering spirit and incredible impact on higher ed, and wish the Commons a very happy third birthday and many birthdays to come!
