Dr. Buntman To Participate in Civic Engagement and Voting Rights Teacher Scholars

April 10, 2024

Fran Buntman

Fran Buntman, Assistant Professor and Director of Graduate studies, has been chosen to participate in the Civic Engagement and Voting Rights Teacher Scholars hosted by Clemson University and supported through the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. 

The Civic Engagement & Voting Rights Teacher Scholars program serves as an avenue for faculty to work together to create classroom teaching materials – by faculty, for faculty – to support a thriving American democracy. Funded through a three-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Teacher Scholars are recruited and supported from across the nation to work in cross-institutional, cross-disciplinary, humanities and arts-based faculty learning communities (FLCs). The Teacher Scholars design, create, and disseminate pedagogical materials for use in college courses nationwide. Each Teacher Scholar will attend an in-person 2-day Summer Institute in Clemson, South Carolina. This will then be followed by a virtual year-long Faculty Learning Community (FLC) of 8 Teacher Scholars (including a facilitator). 

We are excited to see the amazing contributions Dr. Buntman will continue making in the field!
