Do you volunteer? Are you committed to giving back? Do you want to make a difference?
The Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center will be offering a Winter Quarter 2013 course entitled “Are Do-Gooders Doing Good?: Critical Perspectives on Civic Engagement” (General Studies 348; SLN 14377). They would like to invite you to join in a critical reflection on what it means to “do good.”
General Studies 348 will offer a hands-on opportunity to explore the concept of civic engagement. Students will critically reflect on their own service experiences through the lens of several leadership theories, engage with principles of community work, and learn from the experiences of community leaders. The course will draw heavily on students’ involvement in service and will weave these together with elements of other academic coursework and future academic/career goals.
- The course has a required service-learning component (20-40 hours working in the community during the quarter).
- Students are encouraged to utilize current service commitments toward this requirement, though individualized support will be offered to those looking for a service opportunity.
- This is a three-credit course that is offered as credit/no credit.
- Sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:20PM in Mary Gates Hall.
Those interested in the course should email email@example.com with questions and/or to request an add code. Space is limited. Add codes will be distributed as requests are received.
