Math & Science Center - W507
This course is designed to give students the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have accumulated during their undergraduate experience at Emory. Students will contribute to an environmental group project in collaboration with a campus or community group, or governmental entity. The course will use a consultant/client model. The consultant model will allow students to apply theories and concepts learned in this course and other classes to a practical situation either within the environs of Emory or in surrounding locales. Students can apply skills learned in more traditional courses, as well as learn other skills, including analyzing a group’s assets, managing a project, working cooperatively with others, and presenting material to an audience beyond the classroom. Reflective readings on building “community” in environmental practice, organizational and gender dynamics, and the impact of race and economic status on organizing models will complement the service experience.
Permission of instructor required.
