CIVE 333: Service-Learning Practicum

CRN: 16931

Seminar dates and times: TBD

Overview: This academic service-learning (ASL) course introduces students to local community issues and organizations, exploring concepts related to community involvement in metro Detroit and beyond.  Students have the opportunity to propose a service project with a community-based organization that reflects their own interests.  The course allows students to link traditional in-class learning with experiential, hands-on learning in the community.   The community-based service work must be connected to a relevant three or four credit course in which the student is or was recently enrolled.  Over the course of the semester five seminars will be held to give students the opportunity to discuss their experiences, to reflect on the connections between their community-based work and their in-class learning, as well as to present a final project.
