INST 4045 - Community Change: The Civic Apprenticeship

Hours: 4
This course explores collective action, community building, and social networks through a service residency that enables students to work with diverse populations at their sites. Social movement theories that address the use of varied tactics, explore activism, and question the framing of mass movement ideologies will be examined. The course offers a different temporal and geographic landscape for student learning, offering students the possibility to situate themselves within both an emerging scholarly discourse on community change while simultaneously providing a landscape where they can help improve the lives of our neighbors. Students will have daily opportunities to participate in the community, reflect with their peers about that experience, conceptualize the experience within an analytical framework, and test out new strategies at their site during the following visit.
Notes: This course will be taught in a hybrid modality. This course fulfills the dyad requirement when paired with one course from among JAMC 4600, LEAD 3000 and SOCL 3100.
