Ohio Humanities Council Grant for Teacher Institute

With Laura Joseph, Assistant Director of the Center for African Studies, I have been awarded a Ohio Humanities Council Grant ($15,000) for the development, digital documentation & dissemination of K-12 Teachers Institute on Somali history, language, & culture. The Center of African Studies has also granted us $8000 from their UISFL (Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language) grant from the US Department of Education. The institute will be held in June 2009, hosted by the Somali Women & Children’s Alliance and facilitated by EHE’s Office of Outreach and Engagement.
