INST 2205 - Engaged Lives

Hours: 4
This course invites students to critically examine their own civic roles and social responsibilities by being directly engaged in local community action. The course will challenge students to become critically aware of their own values, to understand the ethical dimensions of working in communities at a local level, and to ponder the purpose and meaning of such engagement. Students will have an opportunity to reflect regularly on their community experiences and to understand related larger social, cultural, economic, or political issues from a variety of disciplinary viewpoints. Topics of focus for sections of this course may include homelessness, health, poverty, youth empowerment, or food security.
