Past SHAPE Courses

Our Mellon Foundation grant allowed for the development and teaching of eleven unique courses combining the Science and Engineering disciplines with the Humanities and Arts with the first course taught in Fall Quarter 2020. The final courses were taught in Spring Quarter 2022.

The Mondavi Center assists the faculty in identifying a performing artist to connect to the course topic. Each selected artist was engaged with the students through residency activities throughout the quarter. Each individual SHAPE course culminated with a public performance at the Mondavi Center, bringing student learning opportunities to a diverse audience.

The courses were housed in a diverse range of departments across all four Colleges and the School of Veterinary Medicine.
