The award will enable each of these faculty members to devote time and energy toward designing and planning a new 200-level course that departs from the courses that they usually teach in DAAS.  These courses will promote students’ active and engaged learning, such as opportunities for community involvement, engagement with archival materials, or cooperation with a local institution or organization.  These courses will address our current students’ interests in education, health, politics, structures of inequality, popular culture, and service learning.
