Social/Behavioral Science Exploration
Community Engaged Learning
Community Engaged Learning (CEL) LEAP is a first-year learning community that carefully considers large-scale problems in our society, and how individuals (like you!) and organizations (like the ones you choose to serve!) work to solve them. We will analyze social disparities, conflict, and the potential for societal change. To deeply explore these issues in a hands-on, dynamic way, you will spend time outside of class working with a non-profit organization. This integration of community service and social science provides a robust, meaningful understanding of a fair and just society. In this class, you WILL make a difference. We are surrounded by needs every day; after this class they will be visible to you in ways they may not have previously been, and you will be able to identify and implement solutions.
