About the Course:

The Student Environmental Resource Center (SERC) introduces our DeCal, Environmental Student Organizations at Cal or ESOC! We recognize a growing need for a way to reach incoming freshman and transfer students and inform them about campus environmental groups. This decal is ideal for those who are interested in getting involved but aren’t sure where to start. The course offers the contacts, resources, and support needed for one to integrate themselves in the campus environmental community. While we aim to introduce students to many of the UC Berkeley environmental student  and community organizations organizations, we also strive to provide future volunteer, internship and job opportunities in and around our campus.

 

Throughout the course of this decal, students will familiarize themselves with environmental student movements at UC Berkeley. Equipped with skills gained through group exercises and interaction with our various speakers, students will gain a greater understanding for what it takes to be an integral part of these campus communities. Students will also have access to tools and learn how to get funding to start their own groups or campaigns. This class encourages students to become participatory members and leaders of their new communities by providing the support and opportunities to successfully integrate into UC Berkeley student life.


Grading Components

Weekly Participation:

~ students are expected to come to each class with the short weekly prep assignment completed and ready to engage in dialogue with the speaker and their fellow students. The weekly prep assignment will consist of a video, news article, or short reading intended to stimulate thought and interest about that week’s topic.

Final Project

~ create a poster, powerpoint, or some other visual that introduces an issue you want to address. This can be something that is new to the campus community or can contribute to an existing campaign. Outline the steps you want to take and how you can be successful in accomplishing your goal. If this sounds a little vague, no worries! More details to come later.

Volunteer Hours:

~ each student is required to complete a total of 6 volunteer hours over the course of the semester and turn in two 1 page write ups about their experience. Turn in the first one on or before Week 7 and turn in the other one on or before Week 14.
