Community Engagement

Course Details

This is a course in listening to a community: understanding and empathizing with its needs and learning how to help it share its own knowledge. Students will be exposed to ambassadors from a wide array of communities of various definitions – geographic (neighborhoods, towns), demographic (ethnic groups, age groups), interest-based (parenting, sports) or business-related (catering to a specific industry or job description). As the course progresses, students will begin to identify and interact with the communities they plan to serve in the practicum.
