The Collaborative for Southern Appalachian and Place-Based Studies brings together the efforts of faculty, staff, students, and community partners toward building a transformative and replicable model of interdisciplinary public scholarship and community action that is fundamentally driven by humanistic inquiry and grounded in a focus on place.

The Collaborative for Southern Appalachian and Place-Based Studies is an inter- and intra-institutional Collaborative between the University of the South and Yale University generously supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
