This class includes a component of community-engaged learning, in two of the options for the Philosophy in the World assignment where you can connect with people in the local community or discuss issues relating directly to the local community (the Philosopher’s Café option and the consultation on the BC Poverty Reduction Strategy). If you would like to do more activities in the community with other UBC students, the Centre for Community Engaged Learning has opportunities to do so during Reading Week. You can gain experience working with community groups and non-profits that might be helpful for you in the future, in addition to contributing to local projects!
Please see the Centre For Community Engaged Learning Reading Week program website for more information.
Deadline to apply is January 26, 2018.
