SLD 2300 - Serve the City Practicum: The Role of the Citizen Scholar

Hours: 1-4
Students will examine local community issues (e.g, hunger, immigration, poverty, environmental degradation, and human inequalities) through a social justice lens as they explore their own responsibility as both a citizen and a scholar. Topics of exploration include decreasing social capital, the soul of a citizen, the call for service, and civic engagement. Students will actively participate in the community through service-learning residencies at local schools, non-profits, and government agencies. Students will be trained in advocacy, leadership, community-organizing, and cross-cultural skills before moving out into the non-profit sector. Weekly on-line reflection seminars will promote critical thinking, problem solving, and the development of civic competencies, advocacy skills, and a renewed sense social responsibility.
