Place in the Curriculum
Since this project involves the timing of five courses, the basic information about each course is provided in Table 3. Students across courses connect with community groups involved with river restoration, study the natural history of the river, and stewardship of place through mapping exercises. All course products become part of the Riverscape website which reinforces the campus technology requirements.

Internal and External Funding Sources
Since the focus at Hampton University is on exemplary teaching, we
committed 10% of classroom time to this project, approximately
$18,000. As one of our outcomes for the second year of our SENCER
funding we wrote a proposal to the NSF Curriculum adaptation
program to institutionalize Riverscape as a field course involving
Howard University and Prince George's Community College who are
interested in documenting data for the Anacostia River as a
comparison to the Hampton River.
