Engaged Scholarship: Conducting Research for Equity

COM 495 and 499

10 credits

Summer 2016

Engaged scholarship is the collaboration between academics and individuals outside the academy that supports the exchange of knowledge and resources in partnership and reciprocity. This course bridges research and practice by bringing together UW students and a community in the Rainier Valley area of South Seattle to engage various equity issues. The course is designed to examine the interconnectedness of power, privilege, and difference through academic-­‐community partnerships and applied research. We will explore how youth mentorship, digital storytelling, and resident interviews can help us better understand and address the structural inequalities that the Rainier Valley community experiences.

Students who are accepted into this class will earn 10 Communication credits and receive $1000 stipends as CCDE Undergraduate Fellows. The class will meet at UW Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:40-­‐11:50am and at the Smilow Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club (SRV) in Columbia City from 2:30‐4:30 pm also on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Please complete a short application at by Monday, May 9, 2016.

Students will receive notices of acceptance by Monday, May 16th.

Instructors: Carmen Gonzalez ( and Victoria E. Thomas ( T & Th 9:40am -­‐11:50 am (at UW) and 2:30pm -­‐4:30 pm (at SRV)

Please contact the instructors for more information.

Registration for Summer quarter is now open!

If you are a current or incoming UW student, there are a number of great reasons to take classes during Summer Quarter. It's a perfect time to enroll in a course you need, explore a new interest, or check out a special program. Earn academic credit and make this summer count.

Why UW Summer Quarter?

  • Better Access. Grab a seat in a popular course. Many courses that fill up fast during the regular academic year are open during the summer and often have fewer students.
  • Major, Minor and Requirement Courses. Catch up or get ahead with Summer Quarter classes. Check off a major requirement, a prerequisite or an Area of Knowledge course.
  • Accelerated Learning. Make the most of your time with condensed, intensive summer courses. The full quarter lasts nine weeks, and some classes are half that length.
