Delaware County Community College
The college is one of only three community colleges to have received a grant from the Department of Education’s Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language program this fiscal year. The two-year grant of $95,658 will allow the college to improve practical Spanish language and cultural knowledge throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.
The project’s goals are to expand access to Spanish language and cultural education and enhance employment options for students in professional fields with demand for workers with Spanish language and cultural knowledge. Key academic components of the grant include creation of Open Educational Resources (OER) for introductory and intermediate Spanish courses and a new certificate program in Spanish for the Professions.
The OER would eliminate textbook costs for students in these courses and will be piloted during year two of the grant with expansion into other sections in the future. The grant also allows for training for Spanish faculty members who will teach using the OER.
