JC:HEM Curriculum Oversight and Steering Committee Agrees Framework for JC:HEM Curriculum Transformation
From 2010 to 2014 JC:HEM had the opportunity to learn, everyday, what works and what doesn’t work to bring high-quality low-cost higher education to the margins. In the area of curriculum there were many examples of exceptional courses, and of courses that didn’t work. JC:HEM now moves into the next phase of operation with funding from a generous donor, and begins to engage in a process of curriculum transformation based on the lesson learned from the pilot.

In Dzaleka, it is sometimes easy to lose hope. Before the JC:HEM program arrived in Dzaleka, people only dreamed of achieving higher education, and these dreams were halted due to lack of money and inability to travel outside of the camp.
As one of its programs, JC: HEM offers the Community Service Learning Tracks (CSLT). These are designed to be relevant to problems that the camp community is facing. Thanks to these programs, Dzaleka, now has more people with the ability to resolve problems independently of outside organizations.
