New HDFS 447 Summer Course
For the first time, HDFS 447: Families and Poverty will be offered this summer during zero week (June 18-22, 8 am to 5 pm each day). The required community service will be arranged by the instructor and integrated into the class so it is completed as a group. Most of the community service will take place at Oak Creek Youth Correctional facility, where students will spend time engaging with incarcerated girls. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has a particular interest in working with at-risk youth. For students who have especially busy schedules and may find it difficult to arrange the required community service hours during a regular academic term, this zero week offering may be more convenient. This is expected to be a very intense small class experience that offers extra opportunities for meaningful engagement with the community and fellow students.
If you have questions, email Dr. Tasha Galardi.
