Community Engaged Learning
This course will: (1) expose the ways in which America fails to provide “justice for all;” (2) explore how advocates can be better equipped with data and policy research to advocate for systems-level change; and (3) empower students to design and launch policy-focused solutions to the justice gap. This is an interdisciplinary, project-based course that exposes students to design thinking, systems thinking, community-based research and tech-based collaboration tools. Each semester, this course will tackle a new design challenge. Previous projects to emerge from this course include i4J’s Cost of Eviction Calculator and i4J’s Medical Debt Policy Scorecard.
