Making a Difference in Solidarity is a 6-credit course that earns UF 200 and ISLE 397 credit. The course supports the Foundational Studies Program by engaging students in discussion of ethics, diversity, and internationalization, with an in-depth, interdisciplinary inquiry into the motivations and contexts that lead women who are actively involved with Treasure Valley organizations to “Make a Difference in Solidarity.” Students engaged in service-learning with a community partner: Artisans for Hope, Little Library Literacy Project, or Mobile Recreation.
Students created multi-modal projects, researching the context and motivations of at least one woman who is Making a Difference in Solidarity. The following compositions were displayed at the Service Learning Student Exhibition on December 10, 2014.
