Dynamics of Community Involvement

This community service-learning (CSL) course introduces students to local community issues and organizations, exploring concepts related to community involvement in Saskatoon and beyond. The course combines traditional in-class learning with experiential, hands-on learning in the community. Practical experiences in the community will serve to expand students' academic knowledge of community involvement, and vice versa. Students will spend two hours per week in the classroom and will be placed with a local community-based organization for an additional two hours per week, except during Reading Week in February, when they will participate in Alternative Reading Week activities. In lieu of a final exam, students will have the opportunity to work with University and community partners on a community project. This course is applicable to many disciplines and fields of study, and students will be encouraged to make links between their own academic interests and the course material.

Formerly: Offered as INTS 298 and INTS 201
Prerequisite(s): 30 credit units completed at the University of Saskatchewan.
Note: Students with credit for INTS 201 will not receive credit for this course. This course may be used in the General or Elective requirement for Arts & Science programs.
