This course will prepare undergraduates in the University Scholars Program to create a service-learning project for the University Scholars Program.  The course will be geared towards developing a college access program for middle school students in under-resourced middle school schools in the Durham Public School system. Students will organize a sustainable outreach program while continuing to engage with readings and class discussions to reflect on how socio-historical structures in the American education system and city of Durham shape the nature of college access and community-university service partnerships.
