Call for Applications: Spring 2018 Faculty Fellowship

Category: It's Academic

Published: Oct 27 2017 12:00AM

Montgomery College was recently awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), titled "One College, Many Voices." (Visit http://mcnews.montgomerycollege.edu/2017/08/montgomery-college-awarded-100000-neh-grant for the press release). Like the previous NEH grant that created the Global Humanities Institute, this one will train faculty to integrate global content and perspectives into their teaching. In addition, faculty will focus on ways to help students improve intercultural competencies. However, unlike our previous work, the focus of this new grant is to engage faculty in Communication Studies and in disciplines other than the Humanities.

Like the NEH and most institutions of higher education today, we believe that our students benefit enormously when we are able to help them make connections between world events, approaches to knowledge, and what the future may hold. Introducing the humanities to global topics enables our students and faculty to consider the multitude of perspectives that we have to adopt today in order to understand more deeply the essence of the human experience in an increasingly connected and complex world.

The fellowship is for one semester only (Spring 2018) and offers a small compensation [see application materials, attached]. Thus, it does not displace a course and should have minimal impact on teaching schedules. The meetings will be two hours long, from 1:00--3:00pm at a central campus location to be determined by the home campuses of the fellows, on the following dates:

* Thursday, February 8
* Thursday, February 22
*Tuesday, March 6
*Thursday, March 22 [field trip to Smithsonian, longer session]
*Thursday, April 5
*Thursday, April 19
*Thursday, May 3

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
