BUSN 200 - A01 Busn Learning Through Service - - - - - - - -
Description of course Busn Learning Through Service : CRN: 42216 0 Credit Hours
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.
