HUM-STEM: Redefining Experiential Curriculum for First-Year Students

A one-year planning grant linking humanities and STEM fields through a summer bridge program, experiential learning, and courses in English, biology, and mathematics.

El Paso Community College (EPCC) requests funds to plan HUM-STEM: Redefining Experiential Curriculum for First-Year Students. The curriculum will serve to connect and engage students in the humanities and STEM. This project will build upon existing institutional efforts to incorporate project-based learning into courses, particularly in the STEM areas, but will uniquely infuse humanities-based curriculum and practices, connecting two important academic realms that can nurture and build upon each other. The project will also feature authentic interdisciplinary collaboration and experiential learning opportunities that expose students to the richness, rigor, and vitality of the humanities in three disciplines: English, Biology, and Mathematics. These opportunities will bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical experiences for students and will provide an incubator for faculty to learn and research the impact on students and their learning.
