The Digital Liberal Arts (DLA) at Colorado College and this website were founded through a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to expand faculty-student collaboration in the Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences. Currently, DLA at CC is supported by an ever-growing collaborative of faculty, staff, and students who work to incorporate digital tools into research, teaching, and learning.
