This is the capstone course for students completing community-based research (CBR) projects through Service Opportunities in Leadership. The course examines a leadership framework for working productively with value conflicts in groups and institutions, and the ethics of public problem-solving work.

Students will have the opportunity to reflect critically on their summer work with community organizations, and integrate what they have learned with concepts of leadership, ethics, politics, and policy design. Requirements include weekly point-of-view essays, and group discussions about current political topics.
