Course Description

With the current socioeconomic environment and the population growth in the Triangle, citizens are being challenged as new people move in from diverse communities around the world. As citizens, the goal is to think locally but act globally in interactions. People must adapt to the ever-changing demographics in the Research Triangle. Triangle communities have had an explosion in growth and diversity, especially as it relates to family, faith, work, and educational opportunities. As new populations are introduced into neighborhoods, residents must become more culturally sensitive. This course will seek to bring into focus improved human relations. Throughout these sessions, participants will dialogue, explore, and become transformed in their thinking. This region has been struggling with urban sprawl and light rail and other transportation concerns and must find synergy and consensus with this demographic shift. | Lecture (plus questions); Facilitated discussion; Listening to audio recordings; Viewing videos
