1. Training, Advising and Networking Opportunities: Take an exciting new course, “Leadership, Dialogue, and Actualization”, with professor Americ Azevedo in the Peace and Conflict Studies department (Thursdays from 2-5pm, 4 units) and supported by two staff from the Cal Corps Public Service Center (Nurredina Workman and Damali Burton).
