MCC students are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn history from David White, one of the foremost researchers in the study of the Etruscans and the impact Etruscan culture had on the development of early Rome. White was awarded a seat with The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for a Summer 2015 institute, The Legacy of Ancient Italy: The Etruscans and Early Romans. White built new HIS 130 and HIS 131 curriculum based upon what he learned.
