Learning through Service: Individuals, Societies, and Social Equity

This course will investigate the causes and consequences of social inequity in the U.S., focusing on disparities linked to gender, race, class, and disability (with particular focus on issues pertaining to the specific learning sites students are participating in). Taking a perspective that aims for greater social justice, students will learn to analyze contexts and current and possible solutions for identified problems (How did we get here? Are the solutions beneficial and to whom? Are they sustainable - how and why?). We will focus our analysis on the growing disparity between those who have access to well-funded institutions/programs versus those who do not. In doing so, we will analyze the role of larger socio-economic systems, our own social location, and historical developments that contributed to the current social inequity in the Buffalo region.
