Global Humanities: Many Voices, One College

A two-year faculty development project that would incorporate global humanities content in professional fields.

Montgomery College proposes to place the humanities at the core of its student success program by increasing students’ critical thinking and intercultural competencies through a Many Voices, One College Faculty Fellows Professional Development Program, beginning October 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2019. The project will enable non-humanities faculty from professional fields (business, law, engineering and nursing, among others) and faculty from Communication Studies to add humanistic content to their courses, including Introduction to Human Communication. It will expand on the highly successful work of the Global Humanities Institute, created by an NEH “Bridging Cultures” Challenge Grant. Fellows will discover how global humanities can enhance disciplinary thinking and learn how intercultural competencies can transform instruction. Students will benefit from courses infused with humanities content and instructional strategies designed to help them communicate clearly and persuasively.
