Don’t miss the upcoming information sessions for the Nonprofit and Social Change in London Dialogue of Civilization.
January 20, 2021 from 5:30 PM- 7:30 PM and
January 21 from 11:00 AM- 1:00 PM
On this dialogue, students will study the role of social services and nonprofit organizations in one of the most diverse, global and dynamic cities in the world. This experience will challenge students to consider how well developed and resourced urban areas are addressing social and economic injustices. One of the major themes of this year’s program will be urban social isolation in the age of hyper-connectedness. Students will also explore the historical roots of social welfare in the UK and the ways in which they informed responses to social problems in the United States. This experience will encourage students to consider and compare the experiences of immigrant communities and services while also reflecting on the impact colonization has on contemporary communities and individual mental health. This 8-credit hour experience will blend community and faculty experts and research for students preparing to practice in the social change arena. Seniors in the human services program who would like to use this experience to fulfill the capstone requirement should reach out to faculty.
Learning directly from practitioners in London is a highlight of the program.
