IS 160 - Service Learning

3 credits (PREREQUISITE: NONE)

In this course, students will engage in public service in partnership with agencies or organizations in the Greater Hartford area. Through written work and class discussions, they will reflect on both the purposes of that work and also on how that work responds to specific needs within the community and within the more general context of social justice. Students will also explore issues of social responsibility and citizenship in the professions and business world in relation to the social problems they encounter through their community work. Class may be either online or on ground. (F, Sp, Su)
