Faculty: Kerri-Anne Mitchell
Description: This course will introduce students to the concept of “community changemaking” with an emphasis on: 1) recognizing social, economic, political, and environmental challenges that threaten the quality of life in American communities, 2) learning about the actions being taken by community agents to improve the quality of life in these communities, 3) examining and wrestling with the interdisciplinary values, skills, and strategies associated with effective community changemaking. We will also examine the concepts of individual and collective agency in-depth. Students will have the opportunity to engage in discourse with community changemakers (via zoom and or in-person), community change-making activities, and develop and implement their own small community-changemaking proposal.
