Teaching Giving: Challenging Students to Question the Nature of Philanthropy and Social Justice
Saturday, November 8, 2014: 4:00 PM-4:50 PM
Plaza 3 (Sheraton)
Presenters will discuss how an honors course challenges students to give away $100,000 and make moral judgments as they engage micro-decisions while considering macro-consequences. In four years, 110 students have performed due diligence on over 250 nonprofits, dispersed $280K to 16 nonprofits, and experienced learning that moved beyond classrooms into uncommon professional roles.
