Program Description:
Program Description:
Students enrolled CCS 300 Service Learning: Cultural Barriers to Social Justice Milwaukee will participate in a 20-hour Urban Plunge at the House of Peace, followed by volunteering at the St. Ben’s Community Meal Program for an additional 40 hours over the course of the semester. This course will allow students to explore the cultural and social history underpinning the deep racial divisions in Milwaukee and the impact these have had on both white and non-white community identities.  Assignments will include common readings on white flight, the social construction of poverty and the systemic effects of geographical segregation.  Students will maintain a reflective journal and share their cross-cultural experiences and observations as the semester progresses.  Upon completion of their experience, students will submit a final journal and reflection paper/presentation regarding how the immersion impacted their perceptions of distressed minority populations.
