Community and Civic Engagement

This five-course sequence focuses on civic studies, which sees the citizen as a “creative agent,” who through public work, engages with others to promote civic renewal in communities. Important strands of study include managing common resources and assets; deliberative democracy; public work and the study of public participation in development; and incorporating social science ideas as practical wisdom that lays the foundation for real solutions to community problems.
