PCE 316 - Topics: Collaboration for Justice (2 Cr.)

(PH 216)
Students in this course will examine the intersections among health, equity, access to services and opportunities in relation to the jobs movement called Turnaround Tuesday and at least one offshoot program working in a Baltimore City elementary school. The course blends theory and practice as students collaborate with Baltimoreans involved in community-building and livability-enhancing activities such as improving access to employment, supporting leadership opportunities for returning citizens, and implementing restorative practice circles with school children. Course content will provide contextualizing information on trauma-informed restorative practices, social capital, social control, solidarity, and community well-being standards while students engage with academic definitions of social cohesion in relation to Turnaround Tuesday and its larger transformative aims. Note that off-campus activities are a required component of this course; interested students should contact the professor regarding the specific times that these activities will take place in any given semester. Course is repeatable for credit with different topic. Prerequisite: Sophomore standing. Fall and Spring semesters. Bess.
