Although this class is a continuation of the Reconciliation program from the academic year, it is also open to new students wishing to participate in this pedagogy. This is not a program for students looking for an external, faculty-given pedagogical structure; we will ask students to take a very personal stake in their educational development. Students will pay special attention to what individual and group work they plan on doing, how they plan to learn, how they will know they learned it and what difference the work will make in their lives and within their communities. Students will be encouraged to assume responsibility for their choices. Faculty and students together will work to develop habits of worthwhile community interaction in the context of the education process and liberation. The faculty are interested in providing an environment of collaboration where faculty and students will identify topics of mutual interest and act as partners in the exploration of those topics.
