UC Berkeley NRCs Receive Innovation Grant for New Course

With funding from an Innovation Grant from the UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor for Equity Inclusion, the eight National Resource Centers (NRCs) at UC Berkeley launched IAS198: Accessing International Education, a new one-unit course designed to increase the number of underrepresented students taking advantage of foreign language and area study opportunities at UC Berkeley. IAS198 showcases funding and other opportunities in international studies, explores issues of cross-cultural interaction, and helps students develop their own research and career plans. The syllabus and additional information is available at the course website. The NRCs hope to offer the course every fall.
