Service Learning Classes Win CACTUS Community Involvement Awards


The New Orleans Center for the Gulf South sponsors service-learning classes that bring Tulane undergraduates together with local high school students under the aegis of various community partners. Two of these courses earned CACTUS Community Involvement awards in 2013. Both courses were sponsored by a generous grant from Andrew Fredman (Tulane Class of '84).

Documentary filmmaker Luisa Dantas teaches the screenwriting and documentary course "Place-Based Storytelling in New Orleans" in the English Department. In this course, undergrads and high school students create short films highlighting cultural aspects of their lives or social issues in their schools. The class received the Community Enrichment award and the community partner, Kids ReThink New Orleans Schools, received an award for Social Justice and Advocacy.

American Studies professor Catherine Michna led a multi-faceted course about African-American history and culture called "Makers and Motivations: Culture and Organizing in New Orleans." Michna co-taught the course with poet and activist Kalamu ya Salaam through an innovative peer-based pedagogy and they partnered with Students at the Center. This course brought in local culture-bearers and activists to understand a more richly textured history of civil rights, racial tensions, and New Orleans culture. The class was awarded the Social Justice and Advocacy award. 

In accordance with the Tulane Center for Public Service (CPS), the courses shared two objectives: first, to build equitable, sustainable partnerships with programs in the New Orleans public schools; second, to connect Tulane undergraduates with younger students and cooperate on cultural projects, reporting, documentary filmmaking and video production.
