The Democracy Commitment and the Association of American Colleges and Universities invite applications from community colleges to participate in a three-year faculty and curriculum development civic learning project, Bridging Cultures to Form a Nation: Difference, Community, and Democratic Thinking. TDC and AAC&U will be supported in these efforts by a distinguished group of humanities scholars and seasoned educational leaders.  Interested community colleges are asked to propose specific curriculum and faculty development strategies in high-enrollment humanities courses to deepen students’ understanding of difference, community, and democratic thinking and share that growing knowledge through partnerships with community colleges and state humanities councils.

To advance this work, the ten selected institutions will receive a $7,500 award and commit $3,500 in institutional matching funds to support faculty development activities.
