NEW FOR 2016-2017: Food for All Course Development and Course Enhancement Grants:

Logo-and-TaglineThe University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s university-wide academic theme for 2015-2017 is “Food for All: Local and Global Perspectives.” With this theme, the University is challenging all areas of UNC to examine wide-ranging topics including food cultures and nutrition, food security, world hunger and more. The two years of “Food for All” includes projects, services and events on campus and in the Chapel Hill community. To support this University initiative, the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies is offering course enhancement and course development funds, which will support faculty who are interested in incorporating a Jewish food component into courses to be taught in the academic year of 2016-2017. Visit the faculty grants page for more information and the application form. The deadline for applications is October 24, 2016.
