Hostos Community College has been a partner with the CUNY Humanities Alliance since 2020. Graduate fellows working at Hostos Community College through the CUNY Humanities Alliance will be part of the following projects:
Faculty have been pairing across disciplines (e.g. ESL and HUM, or Art and English) to adapt their curriculum and teach as a learning community. We want to make these existing and new learning communities more structured and promote partnerships building across disciplines. Fellows will work directly with teaching faculty to design linked assignments and assessments and also with students in linked classes. Ideally, Fellows will also work with faculty to tell the story of these learning communities to a wider audience at Hostos and across CUNY through presentations and non-peer reviewed publications.
Humanities Experiential Learning
We have a robust Service Learning and Civic Engagement Committee that (SL-CE) designate courses as experiential learning opportunities (ELOs). Fellows will work with faculty who are interested in developing a service learning or civic engagement course and coordinate with the SL-CE Committee to facilitate syllabus revisions, implement pilot SL or CE projects, and work with the faculty and students. Ideally, Fellows will also work to tell the story of these service learning classes to a wider audience at Hostos and across CUNY through presentations and non-peer reviewed publications.
