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. Potential authors include James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Ryka Aoki, Deborah Miranda, and others. 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: None.

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. Prerequisites: None.

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. Prerequisites: None.

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.

This course provides a container for discerning one’s paradigm for teaching and learning, and for selecting teaching methods that are most congruent with that paradigm. Alternative pedagogies for teaching and learning have emerged in social work education, and four pedagogies representing the most traditional to the most radical will be examined. The ontological, epistemological and axiological assumptions of each will be explored as well as other pedagogical issues such as focus of teaching/learning, role of teacher, course structure and methods of evaluation.

The purpose of this course is to explore and address the role of curriculum – implicit and explicit – in operationalizing the mission and purpose of a social work program, regardless of level – BSW, MSW, and Doctorate. Social work programs ‘live’ in larger institutional, societal and cultural contexts. Based on the grounding provided in previous courses, students will consider the influences on and the role of curriculum in the institution at large, including faculty governance structures that guide curriculum development and changes, the influences of mission and goals on curriculum development at multiple levels, and the unique role of accreditation in the development of social work curriculum. Students will demonstrate their ability to participate in curriculum development through the application of current CSWE Education Policy and Standards (EPAS) to curriculum (explicit and implicit) development activities. Students will independently, and as a team member, implement and map this process from mission and purpose through delivery to include assessment and ongoing improvement.

The Pre-Raphaelites painted Ophelia, “The Lady of Shalott”, and “La Belle Dam Sans Merci.” Salvador Dali painted scenes from Alice and Wonderland. Rodin sculpted Dante’s hell. Artists have often found their inspiration from the great stories of human history. While it seems inevitable that story and painting and poetry and sculpture share a rich, dynamic relationship, this course will explore the reasons behind that and attempt to make explicit the parallels between literary art and fine art. Additionally, we will explore how reading various forms of fine art as a text (ex., conducting formal analysis on composition, proportions, etc.; identifying the style/genre; understanding the historical context; uncovering the patron and his or her agenda) will develop our understanding and interpretation of it; likewise, we will learn to see a literary work as an object of art to be admired and gazed upon rather than merely dissected for ideas. Ultimately, this course aims to teach how a literary work and a corresponding piece of art can work toward a deeper understanding and appreciation of one another. Students will visit the Minneapolis Institute of Art as part of a class project. Additionally, students will choose to either create their own artwork of a literary scene or figure or compose a story or poem based on a piece of art. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 formal revised pages. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.

In this course, we will read stories, essays, and poetry depicting the efforts of their respective authors or fictional protagonists to "rise" in their societies - individually, collectively, or both. Our focus will be on education as an integral facet of these ascension narratives - formal education as well as other formative kinds of learning. Our efforts over the duration of the semester will help us examine the role of education as a means of uplift in our own lives as well as our broader society. We will explore questions regarding success and failure in these endeavors along with inescapable contradictions in these stories while reflecting on how and why they work on many of us so powerfully. Authors may include Frederick Douglass, Zitkala-Sa, Jack Conroy, Anne Moody, Jimmy Baca, and Francisco Jimenez. 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 is a hybrid course that is scheduled to meet weekly on Thursdays from 3:25-5:00pm; during some days or weeks of the semester, we will meet online during regular class time or work and meet online according to our own individual schedules while keeping up with course work and class discussions. The instructor will be traveling during part of the semester, interviewing people living through various stages in their own educational ascension narratives and inviting them to speak with her and the class via Skype. By the end of the semester, the hope is that students will gain deeper insight into their own ideals regarding education and its place in our lives.

Skillfully navigating the multiple realities and needs of organizations requires the development of a reflective practice for both OD practitioner and clients. A reflective practice is transformative in nature as it includes deliberate, developmental, and cyclical methodologies for exploring assumptions around common and uncommon experiences. The depth at which OD Practitioners develop context-rich and meaningful strategies for organization development begins with a commitment by both client and consultant to courageously reflect upon and potentially transform their assumptions. This process of learning is transformative in nature because it drives a fundamental shift in habits of mind regarding the way things get done, why we do them in the first place, and how we view our own roles, behaviors, and efficacy. Specific tools for facilitating transformative learning address these dimensions, which subsume all of our interactions in organizations. In this course, participants will be introduced to state of the art frameworks and tools that support transformative learning in relationship with individuals, teams, and the organization at large. A map of these tools is included below. In this online course, students will be encouraged to critically consider social-organizational phenomena that they have personally encountered, especially disorienting and unresolved dilemmas where no easy (cut-and-dry) answers could be found. Students will be guided through a number of reflective activities, simulations, and case studies to help them appreciate how adults develop subconscious habits and help uncover blind spots that affect how organizations survive and thrive. Paper assignments will focus specifically on the influence of personal narratives, cognitive complexity, social contexts, beliefs, attitudes, and values. All of these foci have a profound impact on how OD practitioners make meaning and learn, thus promoting or limiting the development of their clients. In many ways, students learn how to facilitate transformative learning by experiencing the process themselves.
