In August 2012, Suzanne Keen, Dean of the College, formed the Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG) to spearhead the campus initiative. This group consists of faculty and staff from various departments and units interested in the intersection of information technology and humanities research and teaching. The goal of the working group is to lead the way in establishing DH as a more commonly accepted method of teaching and research.
In 2016, the DHWG became an official university committee. The charge and current membership can be found on the Provost’s website.
