HE 4923 - Service, Professional Practice and Leadership


(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.

In this course, students examine the nature of service as integral to all forms of practice, whether in a professional career, in community leadership roles, or in personal life.  In this course service is a way of being in practice in all parts of life, rather than a community activity or act of charity seen as adjunct to “real life work.” Service is practiced in a multiplicity of contexts: in the corporate sector, in the non-profit sector, in legal or social services, through nutrition programs or in community organizations.  Social responsibility in and through work has become an essential part of professional practice and leadership in the 21st century. Through readings, seminar discussions and weekly reflection papers, as well as guest speakers from a variety of professions, students explore a variety of professional perspectives and practices as these relate to service in their future careers and leadership roles.
