$260,000 over 36 months to Fairfield University, Georgetown University and Universidad Centroamericana (Nicaragua) to integrate civic and moral responsibility into their undergraduate curriculums through humanitarian education and “JUHAN” (Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network). The three collaborating universities aim to strengthen already existing JUHAN programs and provide opportunities for students to consider the “great questions” through the JUHAN lens. The institutional partners will collaborate in developing shared goals for their work and in sharing learning across campuses.
