The Coleman-Guitteau Professorship seeks to promote the development of new or substantially revised interdisciplinary undergraduate humanities courses which focus on basic questions of human nature, conduct, and culture.
Coleman-Guitteau courses should employ pedagogical approaches that emphasize:
• open and critical thinking
• active student participation
• independent inquiry
• the free exchange of ideas
While Coleman-Guitteau courses must be designed and intended primarily for undergraduates, they may also be open to graduate students.
$4,000 Course Enrichment
The Coleman-Guitteau Professorship makes available up to $4,000 for:
• curriculum development
• course enrichment
• guest speakers
• instructional materials
• classroom activities
• related research assistance
• other activities related to the course
$3,000 Summer Support
Coleman-Guitteau Professors will receive $3,000 (plus OPE) in summer salary support.
Team-Teaching Proposals Encouraged
Team-taught courses are encouraged, particularly those involving faculty from different departments. Team-taught courses are eligible for a single Coleman-Guitteau award of up to $4,000 in course enrichment funds. In the case of a team-taught course, both instructors will receive $3,000 (plus OPE) in summer salary for curriculum development.

The Coleman-Guitteau Teaching Professorship was established in 1992 through an endowment made to the Oregon Humanities Center by former OHC Board of Visitors member David B. Stern and Nancy E. Guitteau in honor of their mothers.
