Six U.S. Department of Education National Resource Centers from across the country are collaborating on a curriculum development program at community colleges and minority-serving institutions. The aim of the program is to broaden access to resources and knowledge about the regions of Eastern Europe and Eurasia. The National Resource Centers are running an annual competition in which faculty from community colleges and minority-serving institutions apply to receive stipends (from $1,000-$3,000) in order to redesign an existing course to have more content about Eastern Europe and Eurasia, or create an entirely new course. Plans are in place for this program to run each year from 2014 to 2017.

Here are three examples of winning syllabi. You can also find them on the CCID website resources page:
History 230A: Survey of Russian History
History 240: Russian Civilization
History 404/543: Central Asia
Applications are now being sought for the second year of the program.

Deadline: Friday, January 8, 2016.

See the December 7th CCIDXChange for more information as well.

Please submit applications to Eileen Kunkler at the Center for Slavic and East European Studies at Ohio State University by email at kunkler.10@osu.edu. Award notifications will be sent out by late January 2016.

Community Colleges & Climate Change

The Paris Agreement reached at COP21 (21st Century of Parties Conference) in December by nearly 200 countries is seminal in our global efforts to deal with climate change.   Moving forward, community colleges will need to play a significant role in advancing the ideals of the agreement and continue to educate Americans to respond to a changing environment. 

Join your colleagues April 21-23, 2016 at Northern Virginia Community College for "Global Climate Change and Environmental Challenges: Approaches to Teaching in Community Colleges." 

This will be an opportunity for community college educators to consider approaches to teaching about the environment and climate change. 

Deadline: Friday, March 4, 2016.
