The Change Student Leadership Seminar:
Be The Change: Seminar
The student-led Be the Change: Seminar at the College of St. Scholastica seeks to connect civically-engaged CSS students interested in reflecting on and discussing issues of community activism and social change in a small group format. Students will read essays and articles challenging commonly accepted notions in order to stimulate critical thinking and deep dialogue. Students will also take a collaborative role in the success of the class. They will trust themselves and each other to lead and will learn skills of facilitation through leading a class session in the format of the Seminar. The small group format will allow for the development of relationships wherein students can actively learn from each others’ experiences, paradigms and lexicons.This course is a survey course on a variety of social justice issues from varying viewpoints. Topics of study include: women's rights, HIV/AIDS, service-learning effectiveness/ineffectiveness, optimism/pessimism, globalization, social and economic inequities, and spirituality. The readings and reflection pieces come from a multitude of different viewpoints, ethnicities, and social circumstances.
