With a $120,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, MTSU will help higher education faculty improve their students’ understanding of diverse cultures.

MTSU will join forces with Cleveland State Community College in Cleveland, Tennessee, and Jackson State Community College in Jackson, Tennessee, to implement the program.
