Civic Action and Research

Deadline to Apply: January 25, 2022

This course is a 300 level OSUN course that will culminate in the Get Engaged conference, a leadership and civic engagement-oriented conference in Budapest, Hungary (all expenses paid!). In this upper-level course, students who are leading a community engagement project will deepen their understanding of civil society through participatory research and engagement that explores the structure of civil society organizations, the socio-political environment in which they operate, including the intersection between government and civil society, the root causes of social issues that they are attempting to address, and the context in which the community is addressing the issue. Students will also enhance their capacities and project management skills through a series of leadership workshops.  Each student will be required to produce a project analysis that incorporates primary and secondary research, as well as interviews of key actors in the field. Projects should focus on one of five tracks: Climate Change, Disability Justice, Youth Engagement, Social Entrepreneurship, Inclusion, and Gender Equity.
