JMC’s PNW Initiative so far reaches to eight institutions in the Pacific Northwest. We continue to work to build partnerships in the region so that more students are exposed to the great ideas of American history.
The Initiative is generously supported by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, which works with purpose and enthusiasm to support projects in the Pacific Northwest that educate, develop, and bridge cultures, beliefs and generations.

Bringing together faculty working within the region and incorporating PNW faculty into our national network have both been important for supporting the work happening on PNW campuses and the career development of these professors.

At the same time, our PNW faculty are now gaining new opportunities to serve as guest lecturers themselves, further developing their academic networks.
