S40 SWSP 5604MSP Short Course: Authentic Advocacy: Relationships, Environment, and Self1.0 Unit
Description:Priority is given to MSP students. Space permitting, MSW and MPH students may enroll for elective credit. This course addresses relational and environment factors that can be determining factors in the efficiency and perception of a policy work. The course examines concepts of authenticity, intentionality, the art of bringing people together, code-switching and how to be a strong advocate for the things you truly value. Modules ask each student to consider an authentic melding of values, politics, people and goals. During the class, we will explore using humor and conversational language at the appropriate times to adapting to a sudden change in the power dynamic of a room mid-presentation. Drawing from and cutting across Diffusion of Innovation Theory, Stage Theory of Organizational Change, and Conscious Competence Theory, activities will be varied and interactive including 1. being asked to mock present to a room full of policy makers that seem to change their priorities mid-way through a brief, or 2. to consider how they intentionally gather people around policy decisions or 3. what they are unwilling to accept at any cost and how to advocate for their highest sense of right in real-time. The desired outcome of the course is for each student to feel more familiar with and more confident in considering relationships, environment during their policy work.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
