Join the Office of Service Learning for a yearlong exploration of justice issues culminating in a spring break trip to Washington, D.C. The cohort starts with regular discussions about food justice and involves monthly service at the Boston Food Bank. Over the course of the semester, the focus broadens to wider issues of poverty and systemic problems as students are challenged to address deep questions about justice, gain a better understanding of public policy and rethink their view of service.
The Richard F. Gross Fellows focus on justice in urban environments and explore systemic issues facing urban communities today. Using a holistic approach, Fellows gain firsthand experience of those working on the “front lines” through local service, visiting regional organizations and partnerships, and considering national policy issues and the implications of decisions made at the federal level.
