The goal is to enhance students' capacities to respond to and promote change on personal and institutional levels. Within this context, students will study historical trends and contemporary practices that will shape and impact their future endeavors. By analyzing and evaluating the effectiveness of existing models, students will develop proactive interventions to address pressing community problems.The topic of change will be approached through studies in philosophy, history, sociology, psychology, political economy, scientific inquiry, environmental studies, law, literature, visual/media arts, mathematics, and logic. Students will enhance their knowledge with skill development in the following areas: writing, mathematical reasoning, media literacy, multimedia technology, statistics, public speaking, and organizational and community development.During the fall, students will explore historical and philosophical traditions that inform efforts to design pathways for future possibilities. This includes investigating personal and societal notions of the natural and social worlds as portrayed through arts and humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences.During the winter, students will utilize an interdisciplinary approach to explore and understand contemporary models of change. This includes researching specific community-based problems and identifying proactive strategies that address such concerns.During the spring, students will investigate successful models of change to extrapolate how such models might be useful, but also might be limited in their capacity to address future possibilities, and to propose proactive community-based interventions tailored to specific community concerns.||Tyrus Smith Dee Dunn Suzanne Simons Frances Solomon Peter Bacho Barbara Laners Arlen Speights Anthony Zaragoza Paul McCreary Mingxia Li Gilda Sheppard||Junior JR Senior SR||Fall||Fall Winter Spring|
