New Quest 2 Course: Civic Engagement from the Bob Graham Center

Filed under Academic & Research, Opportunities on December 2, 2019.

Civic Engagement (IDS 2935 Section 2SB2), a new course from the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, aims to strengthen the bridge between civic knowledge and civic agency, reaching beyond traditional civics class to emphasize participatory democracy and engaged citizenship. Students will explore a pressing challenge in our local community—the Spring 2020 theme is Environmental Justice—within the national and international context. You’ll engage with local stakeholders; pursue research questions across disciplines; propose solutions; and learn to advocate via an op-ed, viral video, TED-like talk, or other captivating form.
