Students in this section will work directly with the University of Michigan’s Office of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Affairs (LGBTA) to influence positive change and create alliances within topic areas affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and ally community. Depending on their interests, students will be given the opportunity to focus on issues of concern to the LGBT community including education and outreach, event planning, political action and research, HIV/AIDS programming, and youth mentorship. Educational objectives will include exploration of gender and sexual identity development in addition to community assessment and action planning around these identities. No previous experience is necessary, but students should be open-minded and enthusiastic about service around LGBT issues.

Students enrolled in SOC 389 are responsible for regular attendance in a weekly seminar as well as participation at a designated community service site each week. Students in this section must participate in approximately four hours of site-related work each week. A student’s regular site time will be negotiated when the seminar meets at the beginning of the term, when each student will be asked to share related interests and availability. For the course, students will also complete weekly readings and reflective journal assignments, a midterm assignment, and a final paper/project.

This section is override-only. Students interested in enrolling should email Gabriel Javier, Assistant Director of LGBTA, at javiergc@umich.edu. He will ask each interested student to respond to a few questions to determine if the opportunity is a good fit. If it is, an override will be processed, giving the student permission to enroll in the section.

If you have questions, contact Amy Knife Gould (akgould@umich.edu). Please refer to the specific section number about which you are inquiring.
