PPS263.01 (PPS135) – BORDER CROSSING: LEADERSHIP, VALUE CONFLICTS & PUBLIC LIFE
This is the preparation course for students who plan to conduct community-based research in the summer through Service Opportunities in Leadership (SOL) or another research service-learning opportunity. We have designed this course to provide you with theoretical knowledge and critical reflection skills for entering other cultures to work with community organizations.
You will receive training in basic research methods, and conduct a service project for a community partner organization. You will also be introduced to a leadership framework for analyzing complex problem solving work that requires wading into controversy—and learning to work with it productively—in order mobilize groups, institutions and systems to do difficult work.
