This Seminar will engage student leaders while they explore the related concepts of Whole Communities and Transformative Leadership, in the context of their roles as Community Advisors.
Students will interact with a range of ideas, theories and tools meant to enliven and deepen their involvement in their communities. Drawing concepts from psychology, resiliency theory, embodiment studies, transformative leadership, spirituality, philosophy, and change theory, students will develop personal strategies to cultivate meaningful connections, and to strengthen and embody community competencies:
- effective communication
- critical thinking
Students will explore several important questions, including: What is community? Why does community matter? Who am I within community? How am I transformed within community?
