Founded in the belief that students can have significant intercultural experiences without traveling outside of the United States and funded by the StAR process, this initiative is designed to support implementation of domestic intercultural immersion experiences for SUNY Oneonta students. Projects may focus on issues, themes, and location with historical and/or current significance in the United States or on its borders. Programs may or may not be associated with a credit bearing course. Interdisciplinary proposals, in particular, are encouraged.
Funding for this project could support staff and faculty to coordinate the details of student recruitment, development of the learning experience/curriculum and outcomes, travel costs for faculty/staff and students, and student worker stipends.
There will be two information sessions held to answer questions regarding the proposals and to assist with the development of the budget. Attendance is strongly recommended.
- Monday, March 28: 11:00, 282 Fitzelle
- Thursday, March 31: 2:00, 169 Fitzelle
To be considered for funding, proposals must be submitted electronically to Kelly Spettel (Kelly.Spettel@oneonta.edu ) by April 11, 2016.
This spring semester students have traveled to New Orleans, the Mexico/US border in Arizona, Los Angeles and Brooklyn, all funded by the domestic intercultural immersion program. Where would you like to take students in the United States to give them a unique cultural perspective? Have an idea? Come to an information meeting to work with the committee to flush it out.
