ACLS Strategic Priorities 2021 Progress Report


In May 2020, ACLS published a set of ambitious Strategic Priorities describing the work we believe will help us create and sustain a more socially responsive, diverse, and equitable academy for the 21st century. We identified priorities that would engage our own staff and the broader ACLS community of learned societies, established faculty, contingent faculty, independent scholars, newly minted PhDs, higher education and research library leaders, foundations, and donors – all who share the common cause of supporting the advancement of humanistic scholarship.

We are proud of what we’ve accomplished during the first year of this four-year plan, particularly given the difficult conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are pleased to share this progress in this publication. Read the Progress Report
