Please join us for a two day curriculum development workshop on migration, refugees, and immigrant communities. Learn how to incorporate these topics into your existing curricula, develop activities to bring back to the classroom, and connect with colleagues. This institute will bring together community college educators interested in networking with their peers and incorporating new information on international studies into their teaching and mentoring.

Community college faculty from all disciplines, especially including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), are encouraged to apply. University of Washington and community college faculty, practitioners, and graduate students will lead this two day workshop.

We expect lively discussions and informative lectures. Community college educators will be paid a stipend of $150.00 if they are selected to participate and attend all two days of the workshop. This workshop does not include clock hours. Travel stipends will be available for those coming from east of the Cascades and outside of Washington State.

Applications are due on or before June 10, 2015. Applicants will be notified by June 18, 2015 if they have been accepted into the program.
