Partnerships have been established with numerous organizations in which students are able to pursue their interests while adding to solutions for community problems. This course will give students some tools to assist in community-building efforts and the recognition of community assets as opposed to deficits.

  • ANTH178: Prisons: Theory, Ethnography and Action Professor Susan Phillips
    This seminar critically analyzes past and present issues in juvenile detention, mass incarceration and the prison-industrial complex in the United States. Although the class is primarily focused on juvenile detention, we familiarize ourselves with readings about the current state of our penal system as a whole. This semester, the class will create and pilot a curriculum designed as a rapid-fire, three-week literacy intervention. The class will consist of readings and discussion, as well as planning curriculum development and implementation. 
  • SOC034: Sociology of Education Professor Kathy Yep
    This course explores the role of education in society. Drawing from the work of Paulo Freire, bell hooks and Michael James, students will interpret various educational paradigms in relation to inequality, race, geography, class, gender, and sexuality. As part of a social documentation project, students will research the use of “popular education” in social movements.
  • SOC 084: Nonviolent Social Change Professor Kathy Yep
    Asian American Studies emerged out of the longest student strike in the history of the United States. The third world liberation front used nonviolent social protest to call for educational relevance and greater access to higher education. This class takes a comparative racial approach to examine the history, philosophy and practice of nonviolent social change.
  • PSYC174: Ethnic Minority Mental Health Professor Rick Tsujimoto
    Course covers culturally sensitive treatment approaches and ethnic disparities in mental health treatment rates. Course requires an internship; tutoring a minority student in a program for disadvantaged students, mostly Latinos. Readings focus on children/ adolescents of color, with less on adults. Class is discussion-intensive and emphasizes integration of readings and internship experiences.
