PUBPOL 263S – LEADING IN AND WITH COMMUNITY
As the gateway course for Service Opportunities in Leadership (SOL), this class explores the theory and practice of ethical community engagement, as well as frameworks for leadership that enable social change to flourish within communities. In preparation for SOL summer experiences, students will create ethical community engagement memos articulating their commitments to living into their values, honoring community self-determination, and acknowledging their social location when choosing how to exercise their citizenship in communities. Foundational texts for this class will be narrative stories, guest interviews, and case studies. Students will practice reflective and reflexive writing.
