Project Pericles at Pitzer College
Three Pitzer College courses have been selected for funding by Project Pericles: Topics in Native American Art History: Native California Non-Violent Social Change and Non Citizens in Wartime America.
The College will receive $6,000 in matching funds for the three funded courses and $800 for an administrative honorarium.
Project Pericles encourages and facilitates commitments by colleges and universities to include education for social responsibility and participatory citizenship as an essential part of their educational programs, in and out of the classroom. This learning experience is intended to provide students with a foundation for social and civic involvement and a conviction that democratic institutions and processes offer each person the best opportunity to improve the condition of society.
