In this first-year seminar course, we'll discuss volunteerism, community engagement, and privilege. We will read texts that vary from poetry, short stories, two novels, and academic texts on the dynamics of community engagement and the rhetoric that plays into that. Students will gain an understanding of why service is so important, how it affects our local community in Boone, and take a bigger look at how community engagement plays into the world at large. Students will actively engage with community partners and complete between 6-8 hours of service.
NOTE: Enrollment is restricted to TRIO Student Support Services students.
