Prerequisite: One Sociology course or instructor's consent.
Students will gain practical "hands on" diversity experience in an organizational setting by being placed into one of over 25 city, state, federal or private agencies for whom diversity issues related to race and ethnicity, social class and/or gender are well known to play a significant role. Whenever possible, students' interests and prior academic training will be utilized in determining placements. Service learning courses are intended to provide a means of integrating a student's prior and current academic training with "real world" experience. Thought provoking diversity readings and websites, in-class discussions and online student interactions also form part of the course. Meets once per week.
