USF center director lands historic $8.5 million arts learning grant, the largest award ever for Sarasota-Manatee campus

Denise Davis-Cotton, director of the University of South Florida’s (USF) Center for Partnerships in Arts-Integrated Teaching (PAInT), has been named principal investigator of an $8.5 million grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Education to strengthen arts educational programming in the nation’s educational system.

Titled “Race, Equity, Arts and Cultural History (REACH),” the project seeks to establish a national, replicable model to strengthen arts learning in U.S. schools and harness the effectiveness of arts integration as a catalyst for increasing student engagement and achievement across multiple content areas. The project will be funded over five years.

“The entire USF community joins in celebrating Dr. Davis-Cotton’s tremendous achievement,” Interim USF President Rhea Law said. “This award serves as a shining example of USF’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and it demonstrates the power of collaboration to enrich our communities.”

The Arts Schools Network (ASN), a collective group of national arts leaders, thought partners and valuable contributors to the arts, is working directly with Davis-Cotton to implement the program.

“I am delighted to lead this national initiative that will reach hundreds of thousands of students across the country,” Davis-Cotton said. “This project builds upon my desire to promote programs and secure resources in the arts for socio-economically-depressed communities. I am excited to share my leadership experience and motivation to help educators and teaching artists build upon their prior, current and future work in diversity, equity and inclusion.”

Davis-Cotton, who founded and served as the first principal of Detroit School of Arts, has long enjoyed a collaborative relationship with ASN, where she previously served as a board member and past president. As director of the USF Center for PAInT, which is housed on the Sarasota-Manatee campus, Davis-Cotton has effectively leveraged community partnerships across Florida to develop innovative art-based programming.

“Dr. Davis-Cotton is continually creating ways to elevate the public discourse around issues of equity and inclusion,” said USF Sarasota-Manatee campus Regional Chancellor Karen Holbrook. “It was amazing to receive the news about this grant, but not unexpected given her leadership to advance teacher proficiency and help young students become high academic achievers through the arts. This is the largest award to a program or individual in the history of our campus and is a direct reflection of Denise’s commitment to these important initiatives.”

“I am grateful to Denise and collaborative writers David Flatley, Heather Patay and the team at Complement Consulting Group, who made this grant a reality!” ASN President Scott Rudes said. “This award will engage emerging and seasoned teachers, teaching artists, principals and superintendents in K-16 schools around the country in arts-based professional development learning activities. Davis-Cotton’s visionary commitment to racial equity in the arts is the driving force behind this innovative project that seeks to make meaningful and lasting change.”

REACH is a collaborative, evidence-based model designed to provide sustained professional development by creating and disseminating arts-based materials and programming.

The initiative will involve a multitude of partners, both local to South Florida as well as national. One partner, the Education Development Research Institute (ERDI), will provide an avenue for engagement with national thought leaders at the superintendent level to explore ways in which education can and needs to shift to better support not only creativity at all levels of instruction, but also an inclusive curriculum that reflects the diverse citizenry of the United States.

Participating REACH schools will be representative of the current educational landscape, especially as it relates to underserved students and students with disabilities in traditional public schools, magnet schools and charter schools in urban and rural settings.

Specifically, the grant affords these demonstration schools – including the William Monroe Rowlett Academy for Arts and Communication (Elementary) and the William Monroe Rowlett Academy for Arts and Communication (Middle), both in Bradenton; the Chicago-based Arts In Motion middle and high schools; and the West Michigan Academy of Arts and Academics school in Grand Haven – to serve as national models to design instructional practices on racial and cultural equity, while implementing arts education, arts integration and cultural initiatives in classrooms.

“I look forward to working with Denise,” said Scott Allen, executive director of the Arts Schools Network. “She is regarded in national circles for her dedication and unique talents as a transformational leader and mentor. For decades, she has made distinguished contributions in advancing, promoting and celebrating the arts in education. The grant is poised to have a significant impact as Davis-Cotton anticipates it will annually serve 4,000 students, 150 teacher leaders and 100 teaching artists, arts educators, principals and superintendents per year.”

Flatley, who will serve as lead consultant for the initiative and has been deeply engaged in the arts-integration movement since the early ’90s, said, “This project seeks to establish replicable best practices around inquiry-based curriculum development and delivery that embrace both the effectiveness of arts integration as well as the importance of cultural inclusion and democracy.

“The diversity of institutions ensures that our practices can be translated to other contexts and support the development of an effective replication of the model,” Flatley continued. “The lens with which PD and curriculum will be designed, through the arts, will be a culturally responsive one: exploring race and issues of equity, as well as unpacking hidden histories often not included in today’s curriculum.”

Study center opens at USF Sarasota-Manatee campus

The University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee campus has opened a 1,721-square-foot student study center to create additional study space on campus, including areas for private study, collaborative learning and small group presentations.

The center, on the ground floor of the campus’ FCCI Rotunda, debuted on Oct. 20 with a ribbon cutting attended by USF Interim President Rhea Law, USF Sarasota-Manatee campus Regional Chancellor Karen Holbrook and Campus Board members, among others.

Ribbon cutting

“This is a proud moment,” Law told the group. “This project is the culmination of a lot of work, and I’m so proud of Karen and the leadership of this campus who identified a need and worked hard to resolve it, and I am proud to be here on this wonderful campus at this moment.”

Faculty, staff and students crowded around the center’s entrance as Law and campus leaders cut the green ribbon and opened the doors. Holbrook said the project came in response to students who said the campus lacked study space, including areas for group collaboration.

“They were right, there wasn’t enough space,” Holbrook said. “We put a lot of thought into how we could repurpose part of the campus to help solve some of these problems. This project allowed us to design a multifunctional area for students to study, learn and collaborate.”

The center, which took about six months to complete, is comprised of a large central lounge flanked by five rooms, including one outfitted for group presentations. It includes tables, chairs, desktop computers and video monitors. Glass walls allow for light and make the space visible to visitors in the rotunda.

“I think it’s an amazing space,” campus Gov. Riffat Islam said. “It’s something that students have wanted for a long time, and I’m glad to see that campus leadership listened and took this step to create this space. I’m sure it will be well-received by the students.”

The center replaces the former Student Services lounge, where students checked in and waited to speak with academic advisors. That function has been replaced by the rotunda’s welcome desk.

The project occurred amidst a range of campus upgrades over the past 18 months to create a more engaging experience for students returning to classes in the fall.

Among other changes, crews painted the building, added landscaping, remodeled the second-floor “mini-rotunda” to create more study space and upgraded the Selby Auditorium, removing carpeting and wood paneling. In addition, the stairwells were revamped to allow more light.

“We are thrilled with the improvements made to the campus over the past year,” Holbrook said. “We have a big and bold future ahead of us as we begin planning even more exciting expansions and building projects on the Sarasota-Manatee campus.”

Center for PAInT at USF receives funding to promote diversity, equity and inclusion


Carol and Tom Beeler

For the second consecutive year, the University of South Florida Foundation has received $30,000 in separate donations to support educational programming that combines creative learning and classroom instruction with concepts that promote diversity, equity and inclusion through arts-integration.

The contributions will benefit the Beeler Scholars’ IDEIL Program, named for philanthropists Tom and Carol Beeler of Sarasota. USF’s Florida Center for Partnerships in Arts-Integrated Teaching (Center for PAInT), based on the Sarasota-Manatee campus, administers the program.

The donations – comprised of $10,000 from Carol Beeler and $10,000 each from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Community Foundation of Sarasota County – will ensure the continuation of IDEIL after a successful rollout in 2020. IDEIL stands for Incorporate Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Life skills.

“We are very grateful to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, Gulf Coast Community Foundation and to Carol and Tom Beeler for making a difference in the lives of students,” said Marrie Neumer, associate vice president of advancement.

The Center for PAInT oversees the program with cooperation from colleges, schools and arts organizations, including the Circus Arts Conservatory, Florida Studio Theatre, New College of Florida, Ringling College of Art and Design, State College of Florida, the Visible Men Academy charter school, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe and Booker Promise, a college-readiness initiative at Booker High School in Sarasota.

“The goal of this program is to build a more diverse, equitable and inclusive community on the Suncoast through the arts,” said Denise Davis-Cotton, director of the Center for PAInT. “The Beelers committed themselves to this valuable program and I am thrilled to see this initiative continue to receive ongoing support.”

A “train-the-trainers” program, IDEIL provides an online course for arts organization leaders, teachers, college instructors and others who, after completing the program, are encouraged to share its content with their host organizations. IDEIL’s aim is to connect ideas related to diversity, equity, inclusion and life skills with arts-integrated teaching, an instructional method that combines the arts with academics.

Davis-Cotton developed the instructional program with assistance from Bernadette Bennett, a social studies program specialist at the Sarasota County School District, Michael Shelton, former executive director of the nonprofit Embracing Our Differences, and Carol Beeler.

“The Beeler program empowers teaching artists and educators to engage in equity work that strengthens social cohesion, promotes shared values and celebrates the heritage, histories and cultural identities of an inclusive community,” Davis-Cotton said. “So far, we are seeing a tremendous response from the program participants.”

After a successful first year, which focused on creating the program’s content, curriculum and evaluation process, the course is now being offered to arts organizations, colleges and schools.

The Beelers, longtime supporters of arts and education, contacted Davis-Cotton about their idea in late 2019 before the passing of Tom Beeler earlier this year.

“Tom and I have long supported the idea that our community and country needs to engage in substantive and courageous dialogue around issues of race, and we believe that this program helps to move that dialogue forward in a meaningful and respectful way while also helping young people to understand more about the world and to embrace others of different races and backgrounds,” Carol Beeler said. “I am pleased to again support the IDEIL program and see it attract continued support from the larger Sarasota-Manatee community.”

Kirsten Russell, vice president of community impact at the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, said the organization’s continued funding of IDEIL is consistent with its mission and values.

“Through philanthropy, the Beelers are ensuring that their commitment to young people continues to build careers and a more equitable community, now and in the future,” Russell said. “For students across our region, these are timeless gifts to inspire and support the next generation.”

Similarly, Kirstin Fulkerson, senior vice president for philanthropy at the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, said the IDEIL program was representative of GCCF’s goals.

“This is a wonderful collaboration among foundations, philanthropists, higher education and nonprofits that Gulf Coast fully supports,” she said.

USF hospitality student wins alliance scholarship


Ketrin Gavani, hospitality student

USF’s Ketrin Gavani was among several hospitality students recently to win a scholarship from the Tampa Bay Hospitality Alliance.

Gavani, a senior in the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management in the Muma College of Business, was awarded the $1,000 scholarship during the alliance’s “ExTravelganza” event for culinary and hospitality management students on Oct. 8.

“I was really happy because I wasn’t expecting this,” the 21-year-old Clearwater resident said. “Scholarships can be quite competitive.”

Gavani said she applied for the scholarship, writing a short essay, at the urging of interim Dean Cihan Cobanoglu and was floored to receive an email in September saying she was among the statewide winners.

The Tampa Bay Hospitality Alliance is a partnership between the Hillsborough County Hotel/Motel Association and Pinellas chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. The group has provided annual scholarships to Florida students for 29 years.

Gavani said the subsidy will help pay tuition costs as she completes her final year of college. After that, she plans to pursue a master’s degree in hotel management before launching a career in hospitality, following in her father’s footsteps.

A chief engineer, her father worked at Marriott hotels for many years and often brought his daughter along during site visits. It was during these visits when Gavani developed an interest in hospitality, she said.

After graduate school, she hopes to land a position at a top hotel in Miami and then a corporate position at a large hospitality company. Next summer, she plans to visit Italy as part of a study abroad program.

“We are very proud of Ketrin and her accomplishments,” Cobanoglu said. “It is even more meaningful this year as we now offer the hospitality degree on the Tampa and St. Petersburg campuses, in addition to Sarasota-Manatee, and the scholarship comes from the Tampa Bay Hospitality Alliance.”

Professors from USF, Italian university collaborate on book

USF’s interim dean of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management in the Muma College of Business has teamed up with an Italian professor to create a book that spotlights the research of dozens of scholars worldwide.

“Advances in Global Services and Retail Management: Volume 2,” published this summer, is based on research presented at the recent Global Conference on Services and Retail Management (GLOSERV 2021) in Naples, Italy. It includes more than 100 chapters by researchers from more than 30 countries.

“I am very proud of this book, which includes research from leading experts in retail management from across the world who presented at GLOSERV,” said interim Dean Cihan Cobanoglu, who has helped organize the annual conference for several years.

Cobanoglu worked with co-conference host Valentina Della Corte of the University of Naples Federico II to edit the book, which also saw editing contributions from multiple professors, including Faizan Ali, Seden Dogan and Gozde Turktarhan, all of USF.

The book is divided into nine content areas:

  • Hospitality and Tourism
  • Marketing, E-marketing and Consumer Behavior
  • Management
  • Human Resources Management
  • Retail Management
  • Economics
  • Accounting and Finance
  • Sustainability and Environmental Issues
  • Information Technology

An open-access book, it was published in August by USF M3 Publishing, a service of the USF M3 Center for Hospitality Technology and Innovation, and is available to download for free. Cobanoglu said he hopes the book attracts a cross-section of readers, from professors to practitioners.

“We want readers to receive a thorough update with regard to recent developments and trends in the context of global retail management,” he said. “The researchers in this book are all leading experts in their field.”

Ableism talk sheds light on ways for staff, faculty to better accommodate students

Faculty and staff heard suggestions on how to better accommodate students with disabilities, including through technology, during a virtual discussion about ableism last week.

“I was happy with the reaction to the event and encouraged that those faculty and staff who did attend were inspired to learn more about how to support the academic endeavors of this student population,” said graduate assistant in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity (DIEO) Hawa Allarakhia.

The event, “What I Wish My Professor Knew,” was held virtually last Wednesday. A four-student panel shared their experiences and suggested strategies to help students with disabilities and others succeed in the classroom.

About 30 people, mostly faculty and staff, attended the two-hour event, which was sponsored by USF’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity (DIEO) and Student Accessibility Services (SAS).

Allarakhia, a doctoral candidate in the College of Education, helped organize the talk and said she was pleased with the willingness of faculty and staff to learn more about technologies to assist the students, including in the classroom.

“The best thing all faculty can do is listen to the student when they request an accommodation and do their best to implement it because they have a right to request, and faculty are responsible for providing for the betterment of the student’s success,” she said.

Next up, Allarakhia wants to host a virtual Q&A presentation in the spring based on last week’s discussion and an earlier ableism event. Additionally, the presentation will offer suggestions on how to navigate Canvas and other technologies to better help students with disabilities.

To learn more and submit questions for the presentation, contact Allarakhia at

USF’s Cobanoglu keeps a busy schedule as interim dean – and conference organizer

Cihan Cobanoglu, interim dean of USF’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, hasn’t let the COVID-19 pandemic slow his itinerary.

Soon after capping hosting duties at the Global Conference on Services and Retail Management (GLOSERV 2021) in Naples, Italy, this past May, Cobanoglu was busy helping organize the 4th Global Conference on Creating Value, held virtually Sept. 21-23.

The conference, featuring 17 speakers and hosted by the USF Muma College of Business and Creating Value Alliance, was aimed at executives to guide them in creating more value at their companies.

Cobanoglu, who served as conference co-chair, said he was happy to contribute, despite a hectic schedule that became even busier after he was named interim dean in August.

“I am very proud to be part of this global event, which not only attracted participants from all around the world but also featured speakers from all corners of the world, the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia,” he said. “We received 2,643 registrations and had people from 80 different countries.”

Cobanoglu said he became involved at the request of Creating Value Alliance President Gautam Mahajan.

“I had served as a speaker last year and was happy to accept the invitation,” he said.
