Curriculum Diversity Competitive Grants Project: An Evaluation.
Green, Herman G.; And Others
In 1991, the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education approved guidelines for a competitive grants program that would encourage public colleges and universities to develop and implement specific strategies for making their curricula more inclusive of African American culture and history. The three grant recipients were Technical College of the Low Country, Tri-County College, and the University of South Carolina-Coastal Carolina. The evaluation here reported considered the relationships among the South Carolina Access and Equity goals, the Curriculum Diversity Competitive Grants goals, and the goals of the funded programs. Substantial evidence is found that the grants program is consistent with South Carolina's Access and Equity goals and that progress was made by the participating schools in meeting the objectives of the grants program in the academic year 1991-92. All three projects were successful to some extent in illustrating effective approaches for achieving curriculum diversity, implementing creative faculty development strategies to promote curriculum diversity, and identifying and developing educational resources to support curriculum diversity.
