What We Use And What We Do...

There are numerous ways to implement this class! At its core, the course raises awareness, promotes compassion, and takes action in local and global communities. However, based on your school's culture, this course will look differently for all campuses. For more resource ideas--including the texts and films we use--please check out the boards on our Pinterest page. You can also email me with any questions and for a copy of the course syllabus along with other relevant documents.
