The CAORC/WARA Community College and MSI Faculty Curriculum Development workshop in Dakar, Senegal will take place January 6-22, 2019. Application Deadline: October 22, 2018.

CAORC recognizes the immediate and growing need for professors at U.S. community colleges and minority-serving institutions to provide a global perspective to their students. These administrators and faculty understand the value of developing “internationalized” learning environments that both broaden their students’ cultural horizons and foster critical thinking, communication, and leadership skills for an increasingly interconnected world.

To support community colleges and minority-serving institutions, CAORC offers innovative, cost-effective programming that helps faculty and administrators gain the requisite first-hand experience needed to develop and improve international curricula.

This award program, administered by CAORC in collaboration with its member center in Dakar, Senegal, the West African Research Center, funds participation in a two-week capacity building workshop in Dakar that will also include visits to Toubacouta and Saint-Louis.
