South Bend Urban Plunge

Social Concerns Seminar

South Bend Urban Plunge explores the intersection of the Catholic Social Tradition and the American city; specifically South Bend. Students will explore the nature of cities and what makes for human and community flourishing in an urban context, 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. Specific attention is paid to ways in which people work together to seek the flourishing of their neighbors and neighborhoods irrespective of circumstance and in the midst of the struggles many face.
