A three-year project to bring into the institution’s humanities curricula the study of the cultures of Florida’s Heartland region, from the history of its indigenous peoples and European adventurers to recent influxes from the Caribbean, the Americas, Asia, and Africa.

South Florida State College (SFSC) requests funding to launch a three-year, trans-disciplinary initiative focused on developing and enhancing local scholarship in central Florida’s long history of cultural conflict and fusion. Through A Sense of Home, college faculty and K-12 teachers in the Literature, Humanities, Philosophy, Sociology, and Psychology disciplines will have the opportunity to investigate the people and cultures of central Florida – the stories those peoples have shared through their literature, art, artifacts, social patterns, and collective experiences. These stories reflect more than the struggles and challenges faced by historical groups. SFSC is a minority-serving institution, and these stories form the rich cultural background of the very students who attend SFSC today.
