HE 4922 - Action Inquiry in Service with Community


(CU-CEL, CU-SBY, CU-UGR)     
Fall, spring. 5 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: acceptance to New York City Urban Semester required. Offered in New York City.

S. Beck.

The world of work and professional practice does not function in isolation to the society in which we live.  Therefore it is important to contextualize work experience with a more engaged role in the life of urban communities around us.  Community Action Inquiry provides a lens through which to understand the conditions and disparities that surround us in New York City.  Each semester, students work with residents and leadership within an urban neighborhood to investigate an issue of importance identified by the community, and co-construct solutions that they can act upon and learn from. Students use the participatory action research (PAR) strategy to engage communities through service learning.
