Graham Bullock and Daniel Layman – Associated Colleges of the South Grant
Associate Professor of Political Science, Graham Bullock and Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Daniel Layman have been awarded an Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) / Mellon Faculty Development Grant for their project “The Deliberative Pedagogy (DeeP) Collaborative: Integrating Democratic Deliberation into the Classroom.”
The project invites collaboration from faculty across ACS member institutions and academic divisions to “create opportunities in their courses for students to productively engage with one another on difficult and contentious issues facing our society.” Professors Bullock and Layman will offer a year-long program of collaborative activities to guide participating faculty in developing “deliberation-involved” courses, activities and learning outcomes. The DeeP Collaborative includes participants from ACS member schools: Furman University, Rollins College, Spelman College, Morehouse College and Southwestern University.
The Associated Colleges of the South “strengthens and showcases liberal arts education through collaboration’ sponsoring professional and curricular development across it’s sixteen member institutions.” Read more about Davidson’s Deliberative Citizenship Initiative (DCI), funded by The Duke Endowment, here.
