With an NEH grant, Doane University brought together faculty from its English, biology, and psychology departments to create a sequence of courses that approach the opioid epidemic from literary, psychological, and biological perspectives. The grant provided valuable professional development opportunities for faculty from across the university, supported dialogue and collaboration between departments, and encouraged the development of thematic units that would make the school’s general education courses more cohesive and productive for students. Now in place, this curriculum equips social and natural science students with the tools of the humanities while providing them with the experiential learning opportunities they need to solve real-world problems.
