Sharing Authority: Highland & Lemon Project

STLI supports aspects of a Mellon Grant to explore and build learning experiences with input from community stakeholders. Specifically, we work with James Monroe’s Highland and the Lemon Project at W&M to engage the descendant community and faculty scholars in exploring W&M’s history with race relations. As part of William & Mary’s successful University Teaching Project, two teams were created to collaborate on projects and course development that lead with community engagement, foster civil discourse, and are grounded in humanistic values. 

Our Role:

• Course Design

• Provide opportunities for key faculty members to participate in the STLI Online Course Development Seminar

• Conduct research into community-based learning, course design, and strategic community partnerships

• Produce multimedia content in support of documenting the Highland archive and for storytelling purposes
