The purpose of this course is to develop your capacities as "leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future." (That phrase is from the official mission statement of the University of Michigan.) Through readings, discussion, writing, and practical action, you will learn how to develop organizations that build the leadership capacities of individuals and the democratic power of communities to advance their shared interests. In addition, you will gain insight into how this work can inform basic knowledge about political participation, democratic theory and practice, and organizational processes – and vice versa. Expect to devote approximately 20 hours (plus travel time) to participating in activities and events in metropolitan Detroit as part of this course, in addition to reading, classroom discussions, and periodic writing assignments.
