Engaged Curriculum Grants

Building the Foundations for a New Undergraduate Concentration in the Social Sector

Many emerging leaders are drawn to the fast-growing non-profit social sector through their desire to address critical issues — from the environment, to arts and culture, to education, to social justice — and advance meaningful change in the world. This is why the School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) is increasing students’ educational and career opportunities in this field, opening up alternatives to the corporate and government sectors. A new multidisciplinary concentration builds on the ILR required curriculum and includes a foundational course, new elective courses on special topics, a student affinity group and career support services. Community engagement is a critical, required element of the concentration, and ILR faculty are enhancing the curriculum components of the well-established High Road Fellowship before building similar infrastructures around other engaged learning experiences at ILR.
