During the spring of 2020, The Teagle Foundation awarded Lerone A. Martin, PhD, Associate Professor of Religion and Politics and Director of the American Culture Studies Program (AMCS), in conjunction with the College Prep Program (CPP) at Washington University, a grant to facilitate a student academic experience centered around a newly structured course, “Citizenship and Freedom: From Plato to Maya.” Student Scholars of the College Prep Program participate in this opportunity by way of course work, civic engagement projects, and an immersive, overnight trip to further support their learning experience and development. Upon Dr. Martin’s departure from the University, Fannie Bialek, Assistant Professor of Religion and Politics, was named his successor as the lead on this grant. The College Prep Program is seeking qualified candidates to fulfill the role of Teaching Assistant for the “Citizenship and Freedom” academic experience for Summer 2022.  Read more about the position here.
