TuTh 12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. | Sanford 150
In this class, we will explore how Durham citizens shape and are shaped by the policy environment in which they live and the innovation and creativity they employ to address important social and civic issues in Durham. We will wrestle with the following questions: Who defines community and how do our definitions of community inform our participation in community? What are the core tenants of ethical community engagement and how do we operationalize those tenants in our daily lives? How does geography, race, class, power, privilege influence our conception of citizenship and engagement? We will explore these questions in conversation with leaders in the field of education, housing, government, criminal justice, food security and more and leave the classroom to wrestle with these questions in community with Durham residents. Through active participation and mindful reflection, students will have the opportunity to shape and refine their personal models of social change. All are welcomed.
