Are Do Gooders Doing Good? Winter Quarter Course Option

Are you committed to giving back? Trying to make a difference? Want to get more out of your volunteer experience and make a stronger impact in the community?

During Winter Quarter, we invite you to join in a critical reflection on what it truly means to “do good” in today’s social-cultural climate.

Are Do-Gooders Doing Good? Critical Perspectives on Civic Engagement (GEN STUDIES 348A; SLN 15074)

General Studies 348 will offer a hands-on opportunity to explore the concept of civic engagement. Students will critically reflect on their own service experiences through the lens of academic theories, engage with principles of community work, and learn from the experiences of community leaders. In addition to those perspectives, the course will draw upon current issues/events affecting various communities at large, as well as students’ involvement in service and will weave these together with elements of other academic coursework and future academic/career goals.

The course has a required service-learning component; students are encouraged to utilize current service commitments toward this requirement, though individualized support will be offered to those looking for a service opportunity.

This is a 3-credit course that is offered as credit/no-credit; sessions will be held on Thursdays from 3:30-5:20 PM

Those interested in the course should email engage@uw.edu with questions and/or to request an add code.
