Community Engaged Learning
Community Engaged Learning (CEL) LEAP 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. In this class, you WILL make a difference through service. We will discuss the ways social disparities, conflict, and in/equity are explored imaginatively in literature, film, music, and art. Think about a movie you love... chances are, some injustice is the root of the conflict that drives the plot. This course also includes the opportunity for an alternate break to the U's own Bonderman Field Station at Rio Mesa over Labor Day. (
