Certificate Program in Historic Preservation at Rutgers Camden

hist pres continuing ed 

There's no better place to learn the processes and techniques of historic preservation than the living laboratory of Camden and nearby Philadelphia. The Historic Preservation Continuing Education Program at Rutgers University-Camden was launched in 2016 and is now offering a Certificate in Historic Preservation.

Designed for those who desire to gain a deeper understanding of the vocabulary and discipline of historic preservation, students will learn from professionals working in the field to gain a more realistic perspective on how the tangible remains of our past can be integrated within current environments.

The certificate program is not a degree program, but it can be used to supplement a student's work in an allied field, such as history or architecture. Participation in the certificate program does not require matriculation at Rutgers. Students may begin course work at any time and take classes in any sequence. Students can complete the program at their own pace, but must fulfill all of the requirements.

Find Your Match: Grantmakers and History Organizations, Perfect Together

 mott house

Maybe you have a great idea for an exhibit, or you want to work with a neighborhood organization on an outreach project. Perhaps your building needs a new HVAC system, or you want to develop a strategic plan. What sorts of grants are available to history organizations to help pay for these types of projects? How do you find the right funder for your needs? What are the requirements and expectations of different funders?

Join us October 10 at Washington's Headquarters in Morristown National Historical Park to hear from some of New Jersey's top funders about what they look for in successful proposals and to learn about the range of grant funding available, from government agencies to private foundations to corporate funders.

Participants should come prepared to talk about their projects and funding needs, and time will be set aside to discuss strategies. The workshop will conclude with a networking lunch.

Co-sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities, New Jersey Council for the Humanities, New Jersey Historic Trust, and the New Jersey Historical Commission.

Registration coming soon.

Disaster Planning and Recovery Workshops

 nj car workshop

The New Jersey State Library and the New Jersey Cultural Alliance for Response (NJCAR), will present a series of disaster preparedness training for libraries and humanities-collecting institutions.

The workshops will focus on risk assessment, disaster plan development, salvage priorities and salvage methods, and wet material recovery. At the conclusion of the first session, workshop attendees will have learned the tools necessary for their “homework” of creating draft disaster plans or revising old plans for their institutions. At the second session, attendees will review their plans with workshop leader Thomas Clareson of LYRASIS, and continue their training. Both sessions of the workshop must be attended.

Statewide organizational members of NJCAR will provide in-person follow-up with workshop attendees three months after the training.

The workshop and follow-up activities will help small and mid-sized institutions improve their ability to preserve their collections and addresses the significant risk to New Jersey’s cultural heritage materials from natural disasters and other types of emergencies.

These workshops are supported, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Each two session workshop will be offered in North, Central, and South Jersey locations, starting in October.
