Service Learning Courses
Enroll in a Course
Students in any major or department may participate in a Service Learning (SL) course. Service Learning courses are excellent opportunities to apply course content and classroom learning in a meaningful environment. In Service Learning courses, service activities are imbedded into the course curriculum. These courses are designated with a specific section number and include general education courses, courses within a student’s discipline, internship courses, or capstone projects. All Service Learning courses include at least 25 hours of engaged service activities that meet a community need and required reflection assignments or activities.
URBN 4005/5005 - The Everyday City
Instructor: Dr. Michelle Thompson

This course explores the everyday landscape of the city. Through readings and observational exercises, students will learn to interpret everyday landscapes and understand the processes that shape them. For Fall 2018, The Everyday City course will focus on the redevelopment and economic empowerment of people and businesses that rest within a 19-block area underneath Interstate 10 within the Claiborne Corridor. Students will provide service by supporting the activities and understanding that the context of neighborhood engagement and community development follows "neighborhood planning" models nationally.
