May term course: Global Leadership for Social Change - A Cedar-Riverside Immersion

What can a neighborhood teach us about leadership and social change? What
role does leadership play in strengthening a neighborhood?*

This 3 week May session course explores these questions while offering an
immersion experience of study abroad without even leaving Minneapolis.
Using concepts of leadership and community engagement as a focus, Global
Leadership for Social Change will give students an opportunity to identify
the international and diverse quality of neighborhoods connected to us
right here on the West Bank. With the course being based in the
Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, you will be given a greater opportunity to
explore the neighborhood's historic commercial, theatrical and residential
diversity. You will be learning and working in the Cedar-Riverside
community and examining questions of leadership, power, cultural diversity,
and social change. The course involves an exciting blend of community
engagement, neighborhood excursions, readings, and lively discussions. The
course also includes a neighborhood theater performance and meals at local
restaurants.
