The Alumnae of Northwestern University has awarded funding for seven projects that will bring guest artists and distinguished scholars to campus to enhance the undergraduate experience in 2022-2023. The grants, totaling more than $26,000, are funded with earnings from the Academic Enrichment Endowment, established in 1990 as one of The Alumnae’s 75th Anniversary gifts to the University. These grants help facilitate faculty-sponsored projects that address important and timely issues related to the visual and performing arts, environment and climate change, religion and politics, astronomy, indigenous literature, and peace activism in Korea. Some of the upcoming programs will also be of interest to graduate students, faculty, other Northwestern community members, and, in a few cases, the general public
