Join representatives from Pellissippi State Community College’s Library and staff of NEH’s Office of Challenge Programs on March 30, 2023 at 2 PM EST for a virtual “Open House” showcasing Pellissippi State’s recent NEH grant-supported capital improvement project.

In 2018, Pellissippi State Community College was awarded an Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to establish a library at their Strawberry Plains Campus, which now houses the Appalachian Heritage Collection and provides space for Appalachian Heritage Project programming.

The open house event provides an opportunity to learn about the details of the work, and how Pellissippi State Community College planned the project and successfully applied to NEH. The Pellissippi State project team will discuss challenges faced and overcome. NEH staff will answer questions about applications to Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grants.

Register online for the NEH Open House and come with questions! (If you receive an error message when registering, try using a different browser.)

*Note: If you are not able to attend the live Open House, a recording will be posted on NEH's YouTube channel and on the Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge grant program webpage in early April.
