Collaborative Project in Student Learning

The Examination of Enduring Questions through Humanitarian Education

In June 2013, the Teagle Foundation awarded Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life a three year grant for its project “Collaborative Project in Student Learning: The Examination of Enduring Questions through Humanitarian Education.” The project is using humanitarian action and “JUHAN” (Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network) as a platform to integrate civic and moral responsibility into the undergraduate curriculum at three Jesuit institutions of higher education – Fairfield University, Georgetown University (GU) and Universidad Centroamericana (UCA) in Managua, Nicaragua – in an effort to equip students to deal more effectively with some of the large clusters of “great questions” of meaning and value, and of moral responsibility. This project builds on its previous three-year collaborative grant, “Value-Added Assessment for the Systematic Improvement of Student Learning,” also funded by the Teagle Foundation.
