Sociology (Provost Department Award)
Sociology has been nominated twice previously, a testimony to their being an engaged department and consistently a leader in community service-learning. The department currently lists seven courses with service-learning components, including Community Involvement and Personal Growth, Social Action, Social Change, and Service Internship which is required for all Sociology majors.
Several existing courses have been added CSL this year, Youth Offender and Sociology of Childhood courses, while a corps of sociology instructors incorporated CSL in their Social Problems courses. What distinguishes Sociology in community service-learning is being at the forefront of service-learning developments, and extending service-learning into political engagement.
