Seed Grant: Strategic community building: An alternative to discriminatory practices across disciplines (SCB)

This project will pursue a set of enrichment activities for faculty in Arts & Sciences, Medicine, and the Focus Program organized around Duke’s new Mellon Sawyer Seminar series. Bringing together 27 faculty fellows from Duke and four other Triangle universities, this series explores four themes: minorities, underrepresented communities and language-based discrimination; linguistic diversity in education; multilingualism, immigration and identities; and indigenous and endangered languages. The group will meet for dinner discussions after attending specific lectures. Each team meeting will include students as well as faculty.
