Community Organizing

Under this model, students organize to respond to a community issue. Examples include:

Co-curricular service: Students concerned about renters’ rights prepare a motion for a city council meeting.

Service-learning: A student in an interdisciplinary course focused on radical education theory plans a dialogue to determine best ways to address housing issues in Morris.

Internship: A student interns with Camp Wellstone, an agency focused on community organizing.

Engaged research: A faculty member involved in a local human rights issue brings her research skills to the Morris Human Rights Commission and provides a context for local hate crimes.

Institutional engagement: The Morris campus provides awards for student activists.
