Write a paragraph of 4-5 sentences, detailing your analysis and course of action in dealing with the situation.
A Pitzer student comes to the CEC office to learn about Community Engagement Partnerships. The student asks a staff member, "Which one of these (community partner) sites do you think I should work with? I don't have much time in my week and I'm wondering which sites requires the least work and would be most convenient for me?" Reflect on this scenario and what would be your course of action if you were the staff member.
A couple of students are outside teaching ESL courses to the day laborers at a community partner site. A man from the neighborhood begins to yell xenophobic and racial slurs towards the workers. He then berates the students for their involvement with the workers. Reflect on this scenario and what would be your course of action as one of these students.
