Folger Institute Consortium Executive Committee

Since 1970, the Folger Institute's Consortium has taken a leading role in advancing research and teaching in the humanities.

Each member university nominates a faculty representative to sit on the Consortium Executive Committee, which is charged with program planning and oversight. These representatives also advise program applicants who are affiliated with their universities. Their names and contact information are found below.
