Course Notes: There may be a "boot camp" (likely the Friday or Monday immediately prior to classes starting) to jump start the semester. Seminar time after initial training will be divided between: (1) faculty-led or guest speaker sessions on substantive topics relevant to clinic projects, and (2) student discussion/presentations to the full class with Q&A at key stages of the process. There is also a weekly standing team supervision session once a week (set based on student schedules) and teams may establish their own separate standing team work meeting. Teams will also need to schedule regular meetings with clients and stakeholder to obtain information and feedback. Students should also expect to set aside time at the end of the semester for final presentations that may be outside class time, depending on client schedules. The expectation for total average weekly commitment (including boot camp, class/supervision/meeting time and all client work) is about 13-15 hours per week. However, the first 4-5 weeks of the semester tend to be lighter on client/community engagement (and somewhat heavier on reading/internal work), and the projects gain speed and require more community and team work as they progress toward the final presentation and deliverables. NOTE REGARDING CREDITS: students in this clinic will receive a grade of Honors (H), Pass (P) or Fail (F) at the conclusion of the semester. In accordance with Academic Policy, H and P grades do not earn grading points, so they do not contribute to a student's grade point average (GPA).
