Project Description:

These faculty and staff plan to create a course that studies New Orleans through a variety of disciplines, including at least music, civil engineering, and socio-cultural studies.  Our course could be taught in a regular academic calendar, but is currently being crafted as a three-week intensive course that would include travel to New Orleans and a tour of the new Army Corp Levee Projects, a variety of musical venues and a geographic and historical orientation to the city.  Their goal is to recruit students from both Colleges and provide them with a truly interdisciplinary experience.

Project Participants:

Brian Gockley, Teaching and Learning Center
Kevin Gilmore, Civil & Environmental Engineering
Phil Haynes, Music
