Librarian to Assist Creating Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community

Colleen Haas, a full-time instructor of African and African American Studies, has been chosen as a Faculty Fellow in the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence to develop and implement a Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community at Indiana State.

The Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community will offer the opportunity for faculty to transform existing courses or develop new course content relative to diversity, inclusiveness and global societal perspectives gained from the sessions provided. An announcement calling for participants will be coming soon.

Haas received her bachelor’s degree from The College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1983. She earned her master’s (2005) degree and doctorate (2010) in ethnomusicology from Indiana University. Haas spent 12 months researching in Brazil as a Fulbright scholar in 2006. She joined the Indiana State faculty in 2011. Last week, Haas was recognized with the Community-Based Learning and Scholarship Award during Indiana State University’s Faculty Recognition Banquet.

Edith Campbell, an assistant reference and instruction librarian at Cunningham Memorial Library, will assist with the initiative. She received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati and master’s degree from Indiana University. She will serve the initiative as a faculty affiliate via the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence.

Colleen brings an impressive depth of knowledge, experiences, and passion to this initiative,” said Beth Whitaker, director of the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence. “I am confident that her informed background and collaborative spirit will allow her to lead the new learning community in a highly productive fashion. Edi also comes to this initiative with expertise and energy. She will be assisting in research efforts and program coordination. Under the guidance of these two individuals, I am certain this learning community will afford participants a rewarding opportunity to grow and learn together as they explore the diverse aspects of multicultural curriculum.”
