Teaching African-American Heritage through Learning Communities

A project to establish an interdisciplinary Learning Community Program in the humanities at Virginia Union University, centered on African-American heritage.

This grant supports the implementation of a Learning Community Program (LCP) that involves three humanities departments at Virginia Union University. The LCP focuses on teaching African American Heritage in humanities. The LCP’s mission is to create an educational environment where students acquire and expand their intellectual and academic skills through an interdisciplinary core of courses, with a group of faculty achieving a coordinated effort to deliver the best academic preparation in humanities. The LCP’s vision is to promote student ownership of their learning experience, gain a deeper appreciation of the African American Heritage, and encourage life-long study through high quality educational experiences. The LCP supports the VUU mission to “provide a nurturing intellectually challenging and spiritually enriching environment for learning; empower students to develop strong moral values for success; and develop scholars, leaders, and lifelong learners of a global society.”
