Intercultural Competency Concentration: Humanities Across the Curriculum

A one-year planning grant to develop an undergraduate concentration in intercultural competency for students across the liberal arts and professional programs in nursing, business, and education.

Nevada State College (NSC) seeks support from the NEH to develop an Intercultural Competency Concentration that will enable all undergraduate students at NSC, regardless of their degree program, to purposefully build their intercultural knowledge and self-efficacy in their fields of study and workplaces. The support of the NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant will enable NSC’s humanities faculty to collaborate with faculty from our degree programs with a pre-professional focus (e.g., business, education, and nursing) to develop a cohesive learning community that spans our three Schools, but is also tailored to work with the specific needs of each degree program. The one-year planning phase (2021-2022) will produce a comprehensive proposal for the Intercultural Competency Concentration, to be reviewed by the NSC Faculty Senate and Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents during the 2022-2023 school year.
