This course is aimed at introducing students to the theories and processes of community development, civic engagement and outreach. Students will use a variety of case studies and scenarios to analyze ways in which the public is engaged in decision-making and development of programs and activities in their own contexts. The course will explore historical movements that influence how we engage in community development today, and how approaches have evolved to reflect the agency, strengths and abilities of communities.
