The Tacoma campus program is designed for students who are preparing for professional advancement, completing their Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree, preparing for graduate or professional school, and interested in community leadership. This year’s studies will address multiple ways of thinking, learning, and doing in the midst of a rapidly changing world.  Our faculty and staff have designed a curriculum to develop skills in research, analysis, and critical and creative thinking.  In our 2021-22 academic program we will apply a variety of knowledges while focusing on issues, challenges, and emergent solutions within students’ professional lives and communities.

In fall quarter, students will research and critically examine multiple intelligences and the social construction of knowledge and theory, and de-colonial approaches to various literacies. These include but are not limited to the following types of interdisciplinary literacies: textual, linguistic, numeric, scientific, financial, media, logical, statistical, sociological, environmental, technological, legal, theories of knowledge, and cultural responsiveness.

In winter quarter, based on work done in the fall, students will identify, explore, and develop topics for further research and study using their acquired knowledge and literacies in situations designed to transform themselves and their communities. An introduction of a strategic process for applying methods of restorative and transformative community practices will be critically examined.

In spring quarter, students will continue to research and use various communications media to demonstrate the transformations that they have analyzed and interrogated throughout the program.
