ED 730 Overview

The curriculum for the Service Year aims to provide a base from which to critically and comprehensively examine important issues, and effectively catalyze long-term, systemic transformation. Four major components provide the overall structure for the Service Year curriculum. •Parameters of Service defines service through multiple lenses – academic, sociocultural, individual psychology and behavior. •Application of Service focuses on the fundamental activities of applied, pragmatic service •Transformational Service builds on application, examining how applied service can be infused to effect transformational change in individuals, organizations, and society. •Service Future integrates service with leadership, learning, and scholarship to provide a base from which to mindfully assess the present and effectively articulate a transformational plan for the future. Utilizing these four components, students will continuously develop a philosophy of service. •Students will choose a specific issue (individually or as partners) to explore through in-depth interviews, first-hand observation and analysis of root causes by investigating the history of the issue. The issue is then critically analyzed using the information provided through each of the four components of the course. Reflection, personal stories, and real-world experiences drive the formation of the students' philosophy and subsequent analysis of service and their specific issue. Emphasis for the analysis is placed on the parameters, that is, on breadth of sources, accuracy and primacy of sources, and depth of analysis. The analysis is then shared with the class at the end of the first semester. •Students explore issues of social justice, power and hegemony through the exploration of an “ism.” The ism is a case study that likewise employs interviews, observations and readings about theory and research related to the “ism.” The ism also is explored via the major components of service, analyzed and presented to the class for discussion and amplification of underlying issues of social justice as they relate to leadership, learning, and service. Prerequisite: ED 724 or department approval.
