Inquiry and Action in Urban Contexts

This course combines classroom-based learning with supervised action-oriented field research that emphasizes asset-based social change. Building upon student experiences and interests students will partner with a local urban school or community organization to identify a) core areas of research need; b) meaningful inquiry practices to illuminate these needs; and c) actions to address these needs. The course will culminate in a day of inquiry and action with our school/community partners.
