FYSP 102A.  First-Year Seminar: My Community and I   (3).

General education social and behavioral sciences course. The purpose of this course is to encourage students to carefully analyze their leadership styles, develop their sense of community, and recognize their responsibilities and commitments in the context of leadership for the common good and for purposeful change. Students come to understand the concept of relational leadership in their community and how it differs from traditional leadership theories and styles. This course includes the study of leadership through the development of the students' own leadership potential through the completion of personal and leadership self-assessments, values exploration, as well as the application of leadership theories, concepts and skills. Additionally, this course discusses servant, civic and community leadership as students connect and identify their role and sense of belonging within the communities they live and learn in. First-Year Seminars do not meet a divisional requirement in the pre-Fall 2024 WSU General Education program, and can only be used in Bucket 7 for General Education starting Fall 2024. Course includes service-learning content.
