This experiential, student-designed course is required of all undergraduate students in the Opus College of Business - both majors and minors. The course embodies the Statement of Purpose of the university to “develop morally responsible individuals who combine career competency...while fostering in the student a tradition of service to the public welfare.” The learning objectives include: 1) providing students the opportunity to experience the necessary partnerships between and among healthy, vital communities and healthy, vital businesses; 2) stretching beyond their current comfort zones, especially in terms of being involved with people different from themselves; 3) providing direct service to a nonprofit while meeting individually established personal learning objectives; and 4) exploring the business dynamics of non-profit organizations. Students are encouraged to complete BUSN 200 either during the second semester of their sophomore year or the first semester of their junior year. Students register for BUSN 200 as they would any other academic course at the university. Students should note that their formal BUSN 200 class meets only four times during the semester and that 100% attendance of those four classes is mandatory to complete BUSN 200 successfully. In addition to the 40 hours of service and four class meetings, students will maintain an online journal of their reflections and learnings, and present a final-reflection creative learning project to their classmates. All BUSN 200 requirements - including the 40 hours of service - are completed within the traditional one-semester structure. Service hours or other assignments from one semester cannot be “rolled over” to the next semester. Thus, students should consider carefully the timing of their decision to participate in BUSN 200 for any given semester. This course is graded S/R. Students can complete BUSN 200 while studying abroad or while away from campus during J-term or summer. Note: London Business students complete their BUSN 200 course while studying in London; students considering participation in this program should wait to complete BUSN 200 until that semester.

The role of a faculty member traditionally based on the three major responsibilities of teaching, research and service will be explored within the context of the college/university structure and the changing landscape of higher education, nationally and internationally. This course will explore how the role of the professoriate and active participation in the educational institution bridges the divide between faculty and university administration. In particular, the social work profession offers a lens of social justice and values the importance of a thorough understanding of and active participation in organizational management at multiple levels. Students will examine the committee and governance structures at their home institution – or an alternative - through the lens of university governance structures, analyzing approaches to academic administration that reflect the institution’s history, culture and educational goals. Students will consider their own obligations and aspirations to maximize the potential of the institution, their programs and colleagues in service of educating their students and thriving as members of the professoriate.

The intent of this course is for students to gain a mastery in the selection and application of theories, concepts and frameworks that serve as the grounding of social work and social work teaching. This course will provide the opportunity for students to identify their own bias in the selection and application of theory and the factors that contribute to this process. This course serves to inform the teaching of all social work practice courses (micro through macro), providing students the opportunity to develop skills in deconstructing and reconstructing key theories and frameworks that are utilized in both practice and classroom settings. This course will provide opportunities for students to critically analyze and compare theories from a variety of frameworks including ethics, diversity and social justice. These critical thinking skills will be exercised through students selecting potential theories and/or frameworks for use in their banded dissertations.

This course will provide an overview of mixed methods research, with an emphasis on its application in social work research. Students are expected to have a basic understanding of quantitative and qualitative research methods prior to beginning this course. “Mixed methods” refers to the intentional mixing of quantitative and qualitative approaches within one study or across a program of research. Engagement in mixed methods research is intended to enhance the researcher’s ability to study complex social phenomena holistically, while minimizing some of the limitations posed by mono-method (qualitative or quantitative) designs. The foundation for conducting mixed methods research in social work is laid by exploring the historical, philosophical, and epistemological, roots of this emerging research methodology. Methods for collecting, analyzing and presenting data will also be discussed.

This course serves as a project-focused seminar with the goal of preparing students to write for scholarly publication. Building on previous coursework, the seminar takes the form of a writing group and emphasizes later parts of the writing process (i.e. writing as rewriting, refining, and finalizing). The seminar will give attention to topics such as ways to strengthen one’s methodology and considerations in choosing and writing with a journal’s focus and specifications in mind. The seminar focuses on one paper, offers a social context for writing, and culminates in the finalization of a manuscript, suitable for publication, that can serve as one of the three scholarly products required for the banded dissertation.

Social work programs operate in the context of a rapidly changing higher education environment. In order to remain responsive to environmental changes, organizational structure and function must have sufficient flexibility to adapt, while maintaining a consistent focus on institutional and program mission. Designing and administeringprograms which have these qualities requires a knowledge and value base which, while drawing on traditional management theories, is in many important ways unique to social work. This course is designed to enable students to understand the knowledge base required for program management and to apply it in a manner consistent with social work values.

When writing about war, authors who have served in the military have a few literary options: a memoir, poetry, essays, or a work of fiction. This course will focus on exemplary literature written by those who have been in war mainly through fiction, but we will also read poetry and essays as well. We specifically will investigate how veterans have differing perspectives on warfare and the return back to civilian life, while at the same time how many of them share similar perspectives and grapple with the recalibration into civilian life. Through literature we will come to understand how the psyche of veterans is altered via warfare and the impact it has on their lives and families, as well as society at large. We will also look at how contemporary culture, and historically, veterans have been received or perceived as they return home and how their voice has been implicit/explicit in cultural movements (specifically the counter cultural movement of the 1960’s). How society interacts and supports veterans will be linked to our discussions, and highlighted through a service learning component. Veterans will be invited into our classroom to foster and promote dialogue and understanding on how veteran's voices are heard, what they think we hear, and how we, civilians can better be aware or shift our perspective to best support them in society. Guest speakers may include veterans from the Vietnam War, Iraq War(s), Afghanistan War, and perhaps those currently enlisted. We may also have speakers from professionals who work with veterans. Literature we will focus on in this course includes: Erich Maria Remarque's ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, Kurt Vonnegut's SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE, Tim O'Brien's THE THINGS THEY CARRIED, and Phil Klay's REDEPLOYMENT. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement. NOTE: This class is considered a blended/hybrid course, meaning that students meet once a week as a class and then work online for the remainder of the course time.

The field of project management is young and constantly changing. Companies seek to reduce development cycles while increasing the technological complexity of their products. Corporate downsizing has increased the average workload and reduced the resources available for project development. Sound familiar? This course will discuss the fundamental basis for scheduling and project scope difficulties, and provide tools for creating practical solutions. We will become more aware of why we encounter similar pitfalls with each new project. Discover that you are not alone in encountering a chaotic project life-cycle, the complexity people bring, and the reasons why our organizations are continuing to become more chaotic. This course will examine the new phase development of project management. We will use numerous disciplines to create a more dynamic and flexible project management methodology. These disciplines include Industrial Behavior, Psychology, Human Behavior, Chaos and Complexity, Organizational Behavior, and Systems Theory to name a few. As project managers, we face impossible schedules, unrealistic specifications, and limited budgets. As leaders we face personnel issues, motivation requirements and organizational issues. This course will provide insight and practical examples of the areas of knowledge needed to practice effective project management in today's dynamic work environment. -- Prerequisites: None.

Groups and teams are the central building block and unit of operation used in most organizations today. Complexity, speed, diversity and distributed knowledge are all driving the need to use collective, collaborative methods to solve problems, execute strategies, innovate and change. The understanding of group dynamics is essential to work in these environments and certainly to change them or improve their performance. The study of groups includes theory and practice of: group development, group formation (culture & norms), composition, power dynamics, leadership, communication patterns, group roles, task progress, psycho-social dynamics, decision-making, managing differences and patterns of participation. Process consultation is an approach to understand and improve work in groups and teams. We will examine both the underlying theoretical framework and practical requirements of Process Consultation, attending specifically to two key philosophical frameworks embedded in this consulting model: helping and inquiry. Building on this foundation and incorporating behavioral observation, we will explore those theories-of-practice that enable a practitioner to use process consultation effectively in practice. When groups are organized and chartered as teams, there are some additional models and criteria for effectiveness that affect their performance and outcomes. Most team models have criteria of effectiveness and common categories for team development, including the need for a clear, agreed upon purpose/charter, shared goals, clear roles, productive member relationships, efficient processes and competent talent (composition).Teams are predominantly task-oriented with accountabilities focused on needed organizational results.

This experiential, student-designed course is required of all undergraduate students in the Opus College of Business - both majors and minors. The course embodies the Statement of Purpose of the university to “develop morally responsible individuals who combine career competency...while fostering in the student a tradition of service to the public welfare.” The learning objectives include: 1) providing students the opportunity to experience the necessary partnerships between and among healthy, vital communities and healthy, vital businesses; 2) stretching beyond their current comfort zones, especially in terms of being involved with people different from themselves; 3) providing direct service to a nonprofit while meeting individually established personal learning objectives; and 4) exploring the business dynamics of non-profit organizations. Students are encouraged to complete BUSN 200 either during the second semester of their sophomore year or the first semester of their junior year. Students register for BUSN 200 as they would any other academic course at the university. Students should note that their formal BUSN 200 class meets only four times during the semester and that 100% attendance of those four classes is mandatory to complete BUSN 200 successfully. In addition to the 40 hours of service and four class meetings, students will maintain an online journal of their reflections and learnings, and present a final-reflection creative learning project to their classmates. All BUSN 200 requirements - including the 40 hours of service - are completed within the traditional one-semester structure. Service hours or other assignments from one semester cannot be “rolled over” to the next semester. Thus, students should consider carefully the timing of their decision to participate in BUSN 200 for any given semester. This course is graded S/R. Students can complete BUSN 200 while studying abroad or while away from campus during J-term or summer. Note: London Business students complete their BUSN 200 course while studying in London; students considering participation in this program should wait to complete BUSN 200 until that semester.

What happens when race and sexuality collide? This course will explore literature from writers of color who are also members of the LGBTQ community. We will discuss the impact of having multiple minority statuses, and historic connections between racial and LGBTQ social justice movements.

Through their poetry, novels, and essays, we will examine how these writers redefine our understanding of gender, ethnicity, and relationships, while simultaneously expanding the American Literary canon. Students' final project will consist of connecting one of these authors to a current cultural or political issue. This is a blended/hyrbid course that will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with students completing online assignments on Wednesdays and Fridays. This course fulfills the Historical Perspectives requirement in the English major, the Human Diversity requirement in the core curriculum, and counts as a Writing Across the Curriculum Writing to Learn course.

The field of project management is young and constantly changing. Companies seek to reduce development cycles while increasing the technological complexity of their products. Corporate downsizing has increased the average workload and reduced the resources available for project development. Sound familiar? This course will discuss the fundamental basis for scheduling and project scope difficulties, and provide tools for creating practical solutions. We will become more aware of why we encounter similar pitfalls with each new project. Discover that you are not alone in encountering a chaotic project life-cycle, the complexity people bring, and the reasons why our organizations are continuing to become more chaotic. This course will examine the new phase development of project management. We will use numerous disciplines to create a more dynamic and flexible project management methodology. These disciplines include Industrial Behavior, Psychology, Human Behavior, Chaos and Complexity, Organizational Behavior, and Systems Theory to name a few. As project managers, we face impossible schedules, unrealistic specifications, and limited budgets. As leaders we face personnel issues, motivation requirements and organizational issues. This course will provide insight and practical examples of the areas of knowledge needed to practice effective project management in today's dynamic work environment. -- Prerequisite: Standard core courses

Sustainability is a market imperative in risky and volatile world in which the enduring success of business is influenced by challenges that are beyond the capacity of any single organization to control. These challenges include, for example, economic forces (such as a shifting center of gravity toward the east and south); political forces (such as conflict and protectionism); social forces (such as growing, aging, and urbanizing populations); environmental forces (such as natural resource scarcity and climate change); and technological forces (such as hyperconnectivity and nanotechnology). Sustainability is also a moral imperative and has been defined as development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Today, sustainability is often central to business strategy because of these market and moral imperatives. We will study the implications of sustainability for the market system (including valuing non-economic goods), the organization (including strategies to manage the risks of and capitalize on opportunities from sustainability), and the individual (including our own motivation to work and live sustainably). Sustainability and strategy will be explored through stories, technical material, the business community, and a month-long sustainability project in connection with work or personal goals.

This course explores the major concepts of negotiation inherent in any business or personal situation. The focus will be on interpersonal and inter-group conflict and its resolution. Through the analysis of bargaining and conflict situations, students will be able to learn their own individual "negotiating styles." Some of the major elements of the course include distributive (win-lose) negotiations, integrative (win-win) negotiations, the use of power in negotiations and negotiation ethics. Negotiation cases will be used extensively in the course to allow students to improve their negotiation skills through "hands on" scenarios. Beginning with relatively simple one-on-one negotiations, the course will progress to complex, multi-party negotiations where class members will assume different roles. Attendance is CRITICAL for success in this course, given the multiple graded mock negotiation exercises that are part of the in-class learning experience. Students who expect to miss two or more class meetings during the term should NOT register for this course.
