The week-long AHA Bridging Cultures Pacific institute at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California, concluded a few weeks back with considerable excitement. The first part of the NEH-sponsored “American History, Atlantic and Pacific” brought together 30 community college faculty members, team leaders, and AHA staff for a busy week of seminars and research.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) invites proposals for projects that advance the role of the humanities at community colleges through curriculum and faculty development on the theme of Bridging Cultures (the AHA was in fact a recipient in the last round).
The NEH expects to award two to five cooperative agreements of up to $360,000 each in outright funds. Proposed projects should provide support for community college faculty and administrators to create new courses on Bridging Cultures themes or topics; design new course sequences, concentrations, and core curricula; or conduct scholarly research that will improve faculty preparation and enrich teaching.
