Gallaudet team accepted into the Association of American Colleges and Universities Institute on Civic Prompts in the Major Institute

Dr. Brendan Stern, assistant professor; Dr. David Penna, professor and chair; and Ms. Kate Breen, Lecturer, all with the Department of Government and Public Affairs within the School of Business, Education, and Human Services (SEBHS), and Dr. Khadijat Rashid, Dean, SEBHS, have been invited to participate in the “2020 Institute on Civic Prompts in the Major: Designs in Social Responsibility and the Public Good.” The institute will be held in March of 2020 at George Washington University in Washington, DC and is sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities. The Gallaudet team will be joining nineteen departmental teams from only twelve other private and public higher education institutions. The collected teams represent a range of majors from humanities, social sciences, STEM, and pre-professional specialization.

The Institute on Civic Prompts in the Major: Designs in Social Responsibility and the Public Good is sponsored by The Endeavor Foundation and will provide the teams with the time, space, and rich national resources to embed civic learning across the structure, concepts, and pedagogies of undergraduate majors. The impact to Gallaudet includes enabling students to explore more deeply the intellectual and public questions inherent to their areas of study and the ability to design new vistas and more distinctive disciplinary and interdisciplinary options.
