This course aims to introduce the key concepts of community management, community leadership and collective responsibility and prepare students for their Service-Learning placements. It focuses on soft skills for effective leadership such as cultural competence, team building, and decision-making, and will help to promote intercultural and interfaith tolerance and acceptance among ethnically diverse students. Students will also consider challenges they may face in community development, how leadership can be employed to address issues within communities, and how communities can work together to tackle shared problems.
