A project to incorporate the theme "Water and Culture" into the University's Core Humanities Curriculum.

The humanities faculty at UIW plan to implement a faculty development program to further internationalize the humanities core (general education) curriculum. The over arching goal is to develop in all students a global perspective through which they will be able to view the world, think about issues, and make decisions. This broad vision is imperative in an increasingly globalized professional workplace. To facilitate the teaching of a global perspective, the humanities faculty has chosen to focus on the international theme of "Water and Culture." This theme will be thread through diverse humanities courses and will also help students learn how to draw connections between seemingly disparate humanities courses in the Core Curriculum. NEH funds will support an array of faculty development activities, including a public speaker series, readings, limited travel and service learning trips, and planning workshops. Curriculum revisions will be made starting in Fall 2009.
