In 2017, the solar eclipse across North America was the center of a nationwide effort to engage the public in science and countless events at public institutions. On April 8 2024, Cleveland and the CWRU campus will be underneath another major solar eclipse. In this project-centered class, we will develop and explore plans for the 2024 eclipse year. As we seek out collaborations with government, public, and private institutions and within our university, we will also draw from events in the university’s past and explore the connection of eclipses to art, culture, religion, and science. In doing so, we will use the 2024 eclipse as a focal point to ask important questions about how our university, and higher education in general, relates to local and global communities.
