Inner-City Work/Study (Project / Thesis | 3 hrs Seminar/Discussion) Inner-City Work Study is a summer intensive course that brings students from diverse backgrounds together to work and learn in the inner city. In the spirit of reconciliation and building bridges toward a city free from racism and exclusion, students explore theories of community practice toward transformative change, guided by anti-oppressive and social justice frameworks. Students put theory into practice through a paid 4-month summer internship with a community-based non-profit organization. The intensive work/study program provides students the unique opportunity to combine scholarly learning with summer employment where they will gain valuable experience while contribute to the inner-city community.
