Course Development Fellowship: Diversity
The Diversity Course Development Fellowship provides one stipend of $3,500 for the summer to promote course development work that provides in-depth thematic instruction not included in JCU course offerings. The course can specify a single department or be interdisciplinary. The content of the course will need to focus on issues concerning African Americans, Latin Americans, Asians, Native Americans, Middle Easterners, or the LGBT community. Preference will be given to courses in the areas philosophical and/or psychological perspectives of discrimination (regarding race, class, gender, or sexual orientation), critical analyses of scholars, philosophers, political leaders, forms of artistic expression and historical perspectives on women from the aforementioned populations.
The recipient of this award will be expected to offer the course during the following academic year.
At the end of the fellowship period a written report including a complete syllabus, bibliography, and evaluation plan should be submitted to the Associate Academic Vice President for Student and Faculty Diversity no later than October 1 of the following year. A recipient of the grant must also be available to present course information to the Office of Multicultural Affairs staff and at an OMA lecture.
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE Monday, Feb. 10, 2014.
