In this course, students volunteer and reflect about what it means to provide service for others in need. Students choose their own volunteer sites, based on their personal, academic or career interests. Reading assignments and class discussions address matters of social justice and community. Writing assignments help students to reflect on their volunteerism through the lens of civic responsibility. The course is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who are maintaining a 2.5 cumulative average. Students participating in CIN 100 may earn one to three credits per semester, up to a maximum of six credits applied toward the degree. Freshmen students are also welcome. They may register for one credit during their first semester and up to three credits during their second semester. Credits may not be applied toward the College Liberal Education distribution requirements.
Open to all; students may choose 1, 2 or 3 credits.
