SOC 389 is known as Project Community. Students combine three to four hours of weekly service in community settings, with weekly student-led seminars. Seminars are interactive, focus on related sociological issues, and provide a time for mutual support, planning, and problem-solving.

Students enrolled in SOC 389 are responsible for regular attendance in the weekly seminar as well as regular participation at the designated community service site. Students will be asked to complete weekly readings and reflective journal assignments, a midterm paper/project, and a final paper/project.

Questions and override requests must be directed to the Project Community Office, 1024 Hill Street, (734) 647-8771, Amy Knife Gould, akgould@umich.edu.

ALL STUDENTS MUST FIRST VIEW THE WEBSITE — COURSE SECTION DESCRIPTIONS. PRIOR TO REGISTERING for a SOC 389/Project Community section.

Over 35 community service settings are available. They include schools, hospitals, correctional facilities, shelters, advocacy agencies, and family care organizations. For details, please see the specific section descriptions on the above website.
