Palouse Matters: An Interdisciplinary Curriculum

Planning for an interdisciplinary pathway that would integrate courses on the region into the university’s core curriculum.

“Palouse Matters” proposes a general-education humanities course pathway at Washington State University that explores the complex relationships between people and place in the Palouse: a globally-significant, scenic, and complicated environment. Team-developed and interdisciplinary, Palouse Matters encourages students to read the university’s regional terrain as a rich and contested landscape of beauty, imbalance, transformation, and injustice. Along with augmenting current general education offerings with place-based learning opportunities, Palouse Matters provides hands-on opportunities for field study, civic engagement, and public presentations. Ultimately, the Palouse Matters program will facilitate deep understandings of seemingly incongruous subjects and the relationships among the personal, global, and local, helping students prepare for a lifelong commitment to any community and region.
