Description

This course serves as an introductory overview of writing for self-reflection, the academic community, assets-based project development, and respectful community engagement. It is designed to help students who are passionate about social change apply their academic resources to serve communities. Writing assignments help develop this service through 1) identifying and challenging our own social contexts and assets and 2) engaging in an attitude of humble listening with our communities. For the purposes of this course, community engagement moves beyond simple volunteering or dictating fixes to a problem. Rather, “engagement” means developing an equitable partnership and positive relationship with our community partner for this course, We the People Opportunity Farm. They are a non-profit aiming to “break the cycle of incarceration in Washtenaw County by investing in the employment and development of formerly incarcerated men and women through farming and community engagement.” The culminating project for the course will be research for a grant proposal our community partner can use to fund their organization.
