Dunbar Initiative

Bridging campus and community, teaching and research, the humanities and other disciplines, the Dunbar Initiative engages students, researchers and community members with many facets of Paul Laurence Dunbar's life.

What we do.

The Dunbar Initiative at the University of Dayton is a multi-year, interdisciplinary effort to promote the life, works and legacy of Paul Laurence Dunbar. It is made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The project is led by Minnita Daniel-Cox, Ju Shen, and Jennifer Speed.
