- Civic Engagement
This course aims to prepare graduate students to work in the field of public education policy and management. The course combines a one-semester seminar with a full year of hands-on field work supporting a public school in Harlem. Students will collaborate with Milano faculty, the Center for New York City Affairs, local school leaders and community groups to develop durable partnerships between an elementary school and supportive community-based organizations. The seminar will cover concepts of urban education reform and management, participatory research, and the role of schools in building stronger communities and supporting families. Students will gain practical skills and real-life experience in assessment and evaluation, school and community asset mapping, parent engagement, school leadership, community politics, team building and much more. This is a cross-disciplinary, 3-credit course. The course requires a full-year commitment, and students must be available for daytime field work. Students from all Milano degree programs are encouraged to apply. Faculty approval is required. Second-year students have preference.
