Lead the Way Durham: Civic Engagement, Social Innovation, and Community Leadership in the Bull City
This course will facilitate the exercise of innovative leadership to address important social and civic needs in Durham. We will explore and shape democracy through grassroots work by engaging with issues of participation, citizenship, equity, justice, and well-being in the Durham community. Learning about Durham’s history and with the goal of helping create positive change, students will identify a need, garner the necessary resources, and develop a context specific solution to address this need for the service-learning component of the course. Through active participation and mindful reflection, students will have the opportunity to shape and refine their personal models of social change. Instructor consent required.
