Section Information for Spring 2015

Leading change requires an understanding of individual thoughts and feelings related to change; knowledge of the complexity of groups, organizations, and systems; and a commitment to navigating change in diverse and intersecting contexts and cultures. This course examines change and its elements by asking students to explore and design innovative, collaborative solutions to seemingly intractable social problems. This class will consider and discern topics such as social change and globalization, creative conflict resolution, the nature of power, oppression and influence, and systemic leadership. Students will examine the strategies, and ideas of effective social change advocates in the 21st century.

As a member of the class, you will explore methods of personal and social transformation. By the end of the course, each student will develop a plan for social innovation: a creative proposal for solving a societal problem.
