Santa Fe College Chosen for National Endowment

Santa Fe College was chosen as one of 10 community colleges to take the lead in a new initiative funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and The Democracy Commitment: An American Community College Initiative (TDC) chose the schools, which will participate in the Bridging Cultures program, a three-year curriculum and faculty development project.

“The community colleges chosen for this project are poised to lead the way in developing curricular and co-curricular practices steeped in the humanities and designed to prepare students to be active and engage participants in the democratic process,” said De Anza College President Brian Murphy, one of the founders of The Democracy Commitment and a co-director of the Bridging Cultures project.
