Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

This spring semester course is specifically for CALS students accepted into the CALS NYS Internship Program for the following summer. The class is designed to prepare interns for their summer work and community engagement project by providing detailed, in-class work sessions, coupled with out-of-class assignments, that will result in students developing learning action plans, socio-demographic profiles of their host community, region, and host organization, as well as organizing the first phase of their community development project. Classes will be held in a seminar setting and require each student to use a computer. Please notify the instructor if you require a computer. Course will run the last 8 weeks of the spring semester, may include a field trip to student's internship host community, a meeting with all internship hosts (on campus or via-phone conference), and up to two additional 75 minute classes, if needed, to finalize preparations for summer internship.
