Endowment for acquisitions and study abroad, a spend-down fund for a speaker series, curriculum development, exhibits, cultural service learning activities, and study abroad, as well as fundraising expenses.

To maximize impact on today's community college students, Humanities-related curricular and co-curricular content needs to address: (1) intersectionality, the examination of how categories of identity and structures of inequality are mutually constituted and need to continually be understood in relationship to one another; and (2) transnationalism, which focuses on cultures, structures, and relationships that are formed as a result of the flows of people and resources across geopolitical borders. Seminole State is seeking $100,000 in endowment and spend-down funding from NEH to establish a collegewide Cultural Understanding and Tolerance Initiative, which will take the integration of “culture” to deeper levels, offering students exposure to timely, contextual learning experiences atypical of the community college experience.
