This course will invite students to engage in conversations about service, civic engagement, leadership and associating. We'll think and talk about what it means to be a citizen of ASU, the High Country, the US and the world. Through the reading of provocative texts, we'll practice the habit of civil discourse and respectful argumentation as we engage in service activities. Basically, we'll practice the habit of talking about our role in the community. Students will participate in community based service-learning to explore the four themes of serving, giving, leadership, and associating. The course will improve the student's ability to analyze, evaluate, and synthesize complex ideas in the context of current community issues.
