We have the perfect non-credit Half Block class for you.

Advertising Agency Immersion is an opportunity to exercise your creativity and ingenuity in a professional setting. The class is a week-long dive into the wildly creative, hyper-competitive world of an advertising agency. You’ll be briefed by a senior strategist at a Fortune 100 company on a brand challenge focused on Millennials.

Working in teams, you’ll develop solutions with the input of professionals in all departments (creative, media, accounts, and more). At the end of the week, you’ll present your ideas directly to the company’s brand strategy team via large-screen videoconference.

The class takes place January 8-12, 2018. Interested? Registration for this course closes December 6th, 2017. Sign up today via Summit Student Life!

Are you interested in immigration reform and social justice?

This presentation on the experiences of the CC students in the “Globalization and Immigration on the US/Mexico Border” Sociology class in Arizona will offer a primer on key aspects of the migratory experience to the US from Mexico and Central America.
It will also offer a critical description of the contemporary US immigration policy response to migration, which uses infrastructure, surveillance, detention, apprehension, and legal proceedings as tactics of deterrence.
Discussions will touch on responses to the abuse of human rights, which includes activism on the national, local, and campus levels, and opportunities to get involved.

What Would a Great CC Classroom for All look like? The Crown Faculty Center, The Butler Center, and the NEH Professorship invite interested students to apply to a Spring 2018 Teaching & Learning Circle: “Good to Great in the CC Classroom.” Inspiration for this Circle comes from The Butler Center’s Good to Great programs, collaborative learning communities elsewhere, and feedback that faculty and students would like support to move from awareness of classroom issues to actively addressing these classroom issues.

We propose that a group of faculty, staff, and students study this question over the spring of 2018, determining whether and how to move forward, and if in agreement, establishing the curriculum for the inaugural “Good to Great in the CC Classroom” program to deeply explore the classroom teaching environment, on the Block Plan.

To that end, we seek about 16 faculty, staff, and students to commit to this Teaching & Learning Circle. Participants would agree to attend all (or most) of the following events: MLK Jr Day programming on January 15, 2018; extended discussion and goal-setting, January 16, 2018; blockly working group of ~2 hours each block, at time set by participants; the Early Summer Faculty Retreat (May 23-25, 2018).

If you would like to participate in this Teaching & Learning Circle, please complete a short application here: While we may be unable to invite all interested campus members into the first Circle, there will be many opportunities to participate this year and in the future.
