Initiatives stand at the leading edge of change by promoting collaborative, crossdisciplinary research and transformational scholarship. Fellowships are awarded for faculty, postdoctoral, and graduate research through both internal and external grants.  
Lecture Series include the tri-annual Katz Distinguished Lectures in the Humanities and the Joff Hanuaer Lectures in Western Civilization. Curriculum at the Simpson Center includes interdisciplinary graduate courses and the Certificate in Public Scholarship.
Co-Sponsored Events are supported by small discretionary grants that facilitate opportunities for interdepartmental lectures, colloquia, and conferences at UW.
