Planning for an interdisciplinary general education pathway focused on the study of fresh water.

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (UW-W) and the College of Integrated Studies (CIS) request funds to enhance and augment an existing sequence of core courses to provide a thematic curricular pathway in the undergraduate, general education curriculum. The Water-Humanities Integration Project (WHIP) will connect the humanities more intentionally with social and natural sciences to examine the importance of freshwater in Wisconsin and elsewhere. WHIP will develop team-taught courses that include course-based, experiential learning opportunities in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences at UW-W and the CIS. The CIS recently merged with UW-W; this project will foster more intentional ties between the two campuses and help create a more seamless transfer experience. New courses, including a domestic travel-study, will be developed.
