Folger Institute Consortium and Executive Committee

Since 1970, the Folger Institute's Consortium has taken a leading role in advancing scholarly inquiry and college-level teaching in the humanities. The consortium pursues its work through "resource sharing," with each member institution contributing intellectual, financial, and managerial resources to collective projects that no one of them can accomplish alone. For more information, please visit the Consortium’s page on Folgerpedia.
 
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 may be found below.
 
The Folger Institute celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2020-2021. In that same year, the COVID-19 pandemic tested the consortium’s work in unprecedented ways. We thank those member universities that contributed dues at a “sustaining” rate in that academic year. They are indicated with a caret (^) in the list below.
