Section Description

This one credit-hour class, that will meet one time each month on a Friday afternoon for three hours, will provide students with an opportunity to learn through service.   Each student will be required to serve 50 hours over the course of the semester in the nonprofit or public sector agency of their choice. (Prior service hours, or service experiences connected to other class work, may not be used to meet this requirement.) The class period will consist of lectures presented by graduate school faculty from the LBJ School of Public Affairs, which will highlight leadership and the role of leadership in the non-profit sector.  Students will be expected to complete a reading in preparation for each class session and to verify service hours through documentation and reflection.  Priority enrollment will be given to students participating in the UT Service Scholars Program.  All students signed up for the course will also be given the opportunity to participate in Service Scholar events.  
 
This class meets one Friday a month for 3 hours.  Class dates: January 24th, February 28th, March 28th and April 25th.
