Program Description:

Description
In this upper level course, students who are leading a community engagement project deepen their understanding of civil society through participatory research and engagement that explores the structure of civil society organizations, the socio-political environment in which they operate, including the intersection between government and civil society, the root causes of social issues that they are attempting to address, and the context in which the community is addressing the issue. Students will also enhance their capacities and project management skills through a series of leadership workshops.  Each student will be required to produce a project analysis which incorporates primary and secondary research, as well as interviews of key actors in the field. Projects should focus on one of five tracks: Climate Change, Disability Justice, Youth Engagement, Social Entrepreneurship, Inclusion and Gender Equity.

The course will culminate in a peer-led, OSUN-wide conference on leadership and community engagement.  Prerequisites: Students must be involved in leading a civic engagement project and have taken the CE Network Collaboration Course, OSUN CE Course or equivalent or have received and implemented an OSUN microgrant or community action award. This is a 2 credit OSUN course. Select students can appeal for an accompanying two credit tutorial that would give them an option of completing four credits. Note: This course does not fulfill a post-moderation requirement in PS.
