Cultures and Communities: Learning for the New Century
Cultures and Communities is a new set of foundation courses for undergraduates--one of just a few of its kind in the country--emphasizing cross-cultural literacy, interdisciplinary study and community-based learning. It aims to prepare students to successfully take their places in an increasingly complex and diverse workforce and world.
Cultures and Communities is developing an array of courses and projects that pair UWM with community partners and offer students a chance to gain critical exposure to the rich diversity of their urban environment. Partners include America's Black Holocaust Museum, the Walnut Way Conservation Corporation, Riverside University High School, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Woodland Pattern Book Center and the Milwaukee Public Museum.
