The U.S. higher education institution must have expertise in developing curricula, pedagogy and research capacity on civic engagement and participation, with emphasis on issues of minority rights, social justice and inclusivity. Particular focus should be given to the history and role of student activism and civic engagement in fostering social change.
The project seeks to promote human rights by developing a civic leadership program at the Karakuram International University (KIU) Hunza campus and promote minority inclusion and civic engagement through a partnership between an American university and a Pakistani university in the northern Hunza region of Gilgit-Baltistan, home to the Ismaili minority sect.
To reach this goal, program proposals must include curriculum development and professional development for faculty. Proposals may also include one or more of the following: implementation of faculty and student exchange programs; collaborative research; academic collaboration; exchange of resource materials and publications of mutual interest; and exchange of research journals.
The program will also promote understanding of American history and culture through exposure to the role of HBCUs in serving minority populations in the United States, enhance democratic values, and promote civic participation and leadership on issues affecting minority communities.
