The goal of Project Mosaic is to promote a synergistic dialogue among faculty and enhance student understanding of the Africa and African-American experience. Using a designated central theme, the project brings together faculty and students across campus. Mosaic projects are intended to highlight the intersection of the African Diaspora throughout western culture. These class projects will enhance the learning experience in participating classes by promoting an integrative understanding of the contribution made by people of African descendent while stimulating greater depth within the disciplinary core of each course. The intent is for Project Mosaic to become a recurring campus project sponsored by AAAS program and incorporating diverse thematic foci with rotating faculty participation. Ultimately, this model will aid student and faculty participation in Africa and African-American Studies and support Rollins' goal of promoting global citizenship and nurturing responsible leadership.
Migration or migratory behavior may refer to Biology, Ecology, Anthropology, Sociology, History, Computing, Physic, Chemistry, and other subject matter. In recent years, migration has provided the lens for comparative examination of policy, gender, education, immigration, citizenship, culture, and legal issues. Recognizing the migration of people, concepts, and ideas linked to the African diaspora has had a profound effect on the development of global culture. During the Spring 2012 academic semester, faculty from the Anthropology, Economics, History, Mathematics, and Political Science departments incorporated a consideration of migration into their classes to support the Africa and African-American Studies Program. Topic as varied as fair trade, immigration, demographics, and community building serve to highlight the historic and contemporary legacy of migration linked to the African Diaspora.
