Oklahoma City - An OSU Degree in OKC.

OSU-OKC faculty member receives national recognition 

Tamra Banks Johnston, an Assistant Professor of History in the Humanities Department, has been selected as an NEH Summer Scholar from a national applicant pool to attend one of several seminars and institutes supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Endowment is a federal agency that, each summer, supports these enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities, and cultural institutions, so that faculty can work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines.
Tamra will participate in an Institute entitled “Transcendentalism and Social Reform: Activism and Community Engagement in the Age of Thoreau.” The two-week program will be held in Concord, Massachusetts from June 26 through July 9 and will be directed by Dr. Sandy Petrulionis.
The 25 teachers selected to participate in the program each receive a stipend of $2,200 cover their travel, study, and living expenses.
