Dr. Debra Bourdeau & Dr. Beverly Wood join us to talk about Humanistic STEM and the importance of elevating the Humanities in the STEM field. They discuss what led them to collaborate across disciplines to develop HUMN 333 and how all of our faculty can take small steps to integrate the Humanities into their own courses.
