AYFCE 211 - Conceptual foundations of public scholarship and orientation to contemporary themes and issues in civic and community engagement. This course uses lectures, case studies, and hands on practice to provide a foundation for students' orientation to public scholarship, civic engagement, and the relationship between learning and democratic practice. Core concepts about democracy in America, the land grant university's historic mission, and about service learning and public scholarship are introduced. Students learn about a range of ways that citizens within the United States as well as in other countries participate in democratic decision making. Students also are introduced to diverse political perspectives and civic practices for different ethnic and cultural groups within the United States and internationally. Civic practices in different parts of the world are embedded in the economic conditions and cultural norms of the particular contexts. Students also are introduced to global citizenship/public issues such as environmental sustainability and labor and educational practices, and learn about opportunities for civic engagement within the U.S. and internationally. A key piece of this course is the student's opportunity to travel to San Pedro Sula, Honduras and participate in a medical brigade trip over spring break. Students in this course who decide to travel will also be more exposed to the sustainability goals, global health, education, poverty and economy, ethical and human rights concerns in global health, culture and its relation to health issues.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel overnight accommodations.
