HU2640 Practicum A Schedule

Please note that this practicum and workshop calendar is designed to be flexible; that is, we may make changes along the way, depending on the interests and needs of Practicum members.

Week 1 No Class: Martin Luther King Jr. Day

“Dr. King sought to forge the common ground on which people from all walks of life could join together to address important community issues. Working alongside individuals of all ages, races and backgrounds, Dr. King encouraged Americans to come together to strengthen communities, alleviate poverty, and acknowledge dignity and respect for all human beings. Service, he realized, was the great equalizer.” From MLK Day of Service. Also see The King Center
