Community Engaged Learning
This course is an extension of CSD4600: Diverse Populations with Communication Needs (offered during fall). As a Community Engaged Learning (CEL) designated course, CSD4601 is designed to maintain continued support for CEL partners in spring semesters. As such, students will continue employing concepts and practices obtained in CSD4600 with their CEL partners during this course. As with CSD4600, students will continue working with culturally and linguistically diverse populations, individuals with special needs, and/or marginalized individuals. Through CEL, students will gain a deeper understanding of the concept of health and educational disparities in our community. In addition, students will learn how to identify and work towards reducing barriers experienced by individuals marginalized in the community. Students will participate in a CEL project that will help them to reflect and integrate key concepts from the course.
