Project MELD - Multicultural Enhanced Learning for Diversity, will be supported by a two-year, $250,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation.

Project MELD, to be managed by Penn State's Center for Education Technology Services, will offer a digital library of information, materials and resources on diversity that can be used by faculty on all Penn State campuses. This initiative will augment the University's drive for diversity awareness, particularly among new undergraduate students, and help meet a Faculty Senate mandate for a greater focus on international and multicultural understanding on campus.

"Penn State is committed to creating greater cultural diversity awareness and understanding throughout the University system," said John Harwood, senior director Center for Education Technology Services, and associate professor, School of Information Sciences and Technology/English. "Project MELD will enable us to address this issue across the curriculum, not only in courses that satisfy the intercultural and international competence requirement of Penn State's General Education program, but in many other courses and co-curricular experiences, including the orientation program for first-year students."
