Information Session: Urban Plunge Seminar 2019

Wednesday, October 24, 2018 - 4:00pm

 

The Urban Plunge is a one-credit, experiential-learning course designed to give students a brief but important opportunity to engage with communities experiencing poverty in U.S. cities. With sites in most major cities, students will spend two to four days in a city near their hometown with the chance of spending time with people who face the challenges of poverty and the organizations and those who work to support them and/or work to eradicate this inequity. Leading up to and during this immersion, students will examine the root causes of poverty in urban areas focusing on dimensions such as opportunity, race, mental health, faith-based efforts, gender, housing, criminal justice system, and employment. The application deadline is October 29, 2018.
