Interested in connecting with communities and important issues through your classes?
Then these are the courses for you!
In some courses you will do projects, some you’ll connect with community members to achieve common goals, and in some cases you’ll do both! In all of these classes you will connect course content with community work in ways that complement your education and address community goals.
