Current Grants Include:

Ambika Krishnakumar (HDFS) PI, Chandice Haste-Jackson (HDFS) Co-PI, Cross-Cultural Engagement of First Year Students, Office of the Provost/Academic Affairs Unsurpassed Student Experience Diversity and Inclusion Grant (USE D&I). 5/1/18-4/30/19

The proposed Cross-Cultural Engagement Project is designed to provide first-year undergraduate students in the Department of Human Development and Family Science (HDFS) with an opportunity to explore issues of diversity and inclusion by providing them with multifaceted opportunities for intercultural engagement. In the second semester of their first-year, a cohort of twenty-five HDFS undergraduates will be invited to participate in a seminar course that will include active learning experiences that challenge them to engage with cultures and communities other than their own. The goal is to prepare students for a lifetime of global citizenship. First-year undergraduates will explore concepts of diversity and inclusion that will include among other activities, common book readings and discussion, reflective writing, and common intellectual experiences. Direct and indirect measures will be used to determine what students already know and to assess if they realized the learning objectives of this course.
