In today’s polarized society, dialogue is an essential tool to bridge differences between people. It is important for us to be able to engage others in conversation regardless of our sociocultural background to expand our worldview and gain an awareness of others. This class concentrates on equipping students with skills necessary to be active members in society and to take part in national dialogue. We will discuss trending social and political issues in the United States and worldwide. We will also explore global literature to help us be better intercultural communicators. Throughout the semester, students will be actively involved in on and off campus activities and events.

 1. Reflect upon and incorporate the variables of aging into discussion and decision-making.

 2. Identify and utilize the possible interaction of saging and aging.

 3. Utilize aspects of saging in determination of activities for the aged as appropriate.
