Our Model

UNXD 1130 CBL: Social Action is a 1-credit course through Georgetown University’s Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service (CSJ) that offers students the opportunity to integrate their academic studies with community engagement experience in Washington, DC. Through reflection, UNXD 1130 students link their course of studies with community-based service and social justice work.

The 1-credit course is a substantial commitment that requires concentrated effort and a willingness to analyze one’s self and important social justice issues. Throughout the semester, students discover how knowledge and action can support and advance one another in the promotion of social justice.

Example of a UNXD 1130 student:

Harry Hoya is a sophomore at Georgetown who is interested in how languages are learned. Harry spends 5 hours a week as a tutor with the DC Schools Project, through which he teaches English to a 10 year-old boy who recently immigrated to Washington, DC from Guatemala City. Harry applies to UNXD 130 because he is also enrolled in a 3-credit Linguistics course, How Languages are Learned, and wants to think explicitly about the relationship between his work with DC Schools and his studies in Linguistics. Harry will require the approval of the program director at the DC Schools Project.
