If you’re interested in having community service be a part of your education, Service
LEAP is a good choice for you. Over two semesters, you’ll complete 50 hours of community
service. And, as part of a small class, you’ll have both a professor and a peer advisor
to guide you through the
year. We’ll also connect you with the Bennion Community Service Center on Campus.
This course is a community-engaged course which includes elements of both in-class and community-based learning opportunities. Real world service is built in and the course curriculum is purposefully tied to that service. Social justice is carefully considered within this framework.
The fall semester course focuses on the construction of social identity and definitions of community from a social science perspective.
Spring semester begins with influential classic texts that informed current understandings of justice as they developed, and ends with contemporary art and literature to explore both dystopic and utopic possibilities for justice in the future.
