Leadership in Building Communities Seminar

A collaboration of the Fitz Center, the departments of Political Science and Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work and the Public Administration graduate program, the Leadership in Building Communities seminar enrolls a mix of Master of Public Administration graduate students and undergraduates from the disciplines of political science, sociology, education, criminal justice and others. This seminar places UD students within a City of Dayton neighborhood to understand the inner workings of local politics. Through lectures, tours, neighborhood meetings, a team project, and extensive reading, the seminar teaches the art of building community. Students find the seminar eye opening and enlightening, regardless of their discipline.
