Brief History:
This high school Clemente Course began in the fall of 2013 through a partnership between the Utah Humanities Council, the University of Utah, Westminster College, and East High in Salt Lake City. The first class was a group of 21 AVID sophomores. They studied art history, philosophy, history, literature, and critical writing during two semesters. They had two class projects: The We Are One Inside Out art project and an oral history project in which students interviewed family members as part of their study of migration in the U.S.
