BACP 3400 - Civic Engagement
Because education has social as well as personal benefits, it carries with it opportunities and obligations for civic engagement. Most people have some desire to be of help to others, but knowing how to help without interfering or being condescending often requires cultivated sensitivity. The Civic Engagement project provides students with an opportunity to identify a community need, learn how that need is or is not being addressed, and get engaged in a particular set of service activities for an agreed upon duration of time. Students may receive help with finding appropriate settings through DU’s Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning. Online students will receive help in how to identify service learning opportunities in their local communities or through their employers. Students will be expected to keep and submit a reflective log on the nature of their activity and the learning they have derived from it.
