Introduction to Community Engagement
0.5 Credit - Fall
This foundational course for the Community Engagement Option introduces the key concepts of social inclusion,
local democracy, distributive economics, and community development. It
investigates distinct features of community development in Canada and explores
the method of linking experience with critical analysis, ethical reflection and
purposeful action. A major part of the course will be an intensive on-the-ground
set of learning experiences that take place in downtown Kitchener during the
week prior to the start of the Fall term.
