Post-Secondary Curriculum Resources

From 1983-2013, CREES awarded grants to faculty at 2- and 4-year colleges in the Midwest and, from 1998-2013, to faculty at Historically Black Colleges and Universities to support short-term residencies at the University of Michigan to develop REES-area focused course syllabi, modules, and other teaching materials for their home institutions.

The contents of curriculum materials posted below were developed under Title VI National Resource Center grants from the U.S. Department of Education. However, those contents do not necessarily represent the policy of the U.S. Department of Education, and you should not assume endorsement by the Federal Government. We are grateful to faculty awardees who have agreed to share their work.
