SOCW 554 18A - Inequalities In A Diverse Scty

Campus: Urbana-Champaign


In contemporary American society, not all inequality leads to inequity. In this course, we will explore structural and cultural disparities that proceed from race, ethnicity, and class. Such critical inquiry enables students to understand the factors that contribute to the creation and implementation of public policy and guide the delivery of social goods such as adequate housing, safe communities, efficient transportation, affordable health care, quality education, and other public services. Therefore, we emphasize processes of analysis and the application of social entrepreneurial principles as important tools to generate policies and interventions that lead to a more equitable society.
