Tracy Voreis
I learned a lot about the experiences of refugees in the US. For the final project, I was able to find resources in my community to help refugees make connections adjust to American life. The instructor broke the final project down into smaller topics to look into each week, and that helped us gather resources for everything from finding employment to accessing art.

Excellent class, and a great book study! Relevant to so many ongoing issues in school and in our communities. The discussions brought in a variety of perspectives, and the resulting projects created immediately useful guides and products for future application.

Awesome class. Totally relevant and the final project is something I will use at the start of the year. SO excited about this class.
