Political Engagement in Urban Society LLC

If you're interested in getting to know your local and national community, and immersing yourself in a little dialogue and debate in your residence hall, then this is the LLC for you! Living in the Political Engagement in the Urban Society LLC will challenge you to examine the misfortune of underrepresented groups in urban areas, contemplate reform options and explore how you can make a difference. You will also have the opportunity to look at invisible divisions that plague American cities and discuss possible solutions to build a more cohesive community. As part of this exploration, you will be encouraged to participate in student government, Hall Council and community activist groups.
