SVL 422 - Service Learning in a Democratic Society (3)

Prerequisite(s): LAR 202  or LDR 201  
Students gain first-hand experience by participating in a service-learning experience with a community partner that addresses an unmet community need. Students can choose from a list of potential service-learning opportunities provided by the instructor or a student can propose their own service-learning experience to be approved by the instructor. The student chooses the opportunity based on their personal interest and ideally it is relevant to their major. The course will explore concepts related to civic responsibility, its role in a democratic society, and what it means to each individual student. Students draw upon their service experiences to inform discussion, written assignments, and research. The class will meet 1-2 times a week. Students will be expected to volunteer at least 4-5 hours/week with the selected Community Partner.
