This undergraduate course is being developed as a high-impact elective for all students in the College of Education and Professional Studies (CEPS). There are four major assignments that will be completed in this course:

  1. Students will create and manage Twitter and/or Facebook class accounts. Students will be provided a rotating schedule to manage the accounts to allow for practice of appropriate professional communication.
  2. Students in this course will be expected to facilitate classroom discussions. This assignment will require students to coherently organize and present content in a manner that prepares them for professional meetings and discussions.
  3. Students will observe family or domestic violence court to examine processes that impact and change the lives of others.
  4. Students will conduct an on-campus dating and sexual violence bystander intervention campaign. Components of this campaign include dissemination of educational materials and data collection.
