Join us for an information session to learn more about the Cornell Migrations initiative’s Community College Fellowships on Racism, Dispossession, and Migration (RDM) for faculty of any discipline at two-year institutions in upstate New York.
With support from the Mellon Foundation Just Futures Initiative and Global Cornell, this opportunity is a year-long supported program that provides $1,000 for community college faculty to integrate issues of racism, dispossession, and migration into their curricula.
RDM projects may include a new course, a new unit for an existing course, or a service-learning component to an existing course that encourages discussion on issues of racism, dispossession, and migration. Understanding the historical and contemporary relationships between the displacement of people, including through the dispossession of Indigenous lands and rights, and racism, xenophobia, opposition to immigration, and anti-immigrant violence.
The Cornell Migrations co-directors will address any questions about priorities, selection criteria, budgets, and other guidance on how to prepare a successful application. Proposals due on February 22, 2022, by email to Mary Ball, Migrations initiative program manager, firstname.lastname@example.org. Consultation on proposal ideas is strongly encouraged and questions about this fellowship are wholly welcome.
