Transforming a program with dwindling enrollments into a thriving program for the 21st century was my mission. I not only redesigned the program and introduced pioneering courses like the world’s first AI for the Humanities, but also spearheaded the establishment of our renowned KDH Lab.The lab’s mentored research has garnered global recognition, with over 26,000 downloads from 150 countries and over 2000 institutions. Today, I share my expertise with other institutions, guiding them in implementing similar transformative programs. 

 As the leader of our college’s digital humanities initiative with an NEH professorship, I also foster collaboration among departments. Today our digital humanities faculty group draws from over ten departments.
