This course looks at social change through the perspective of policies and strategies that have been shown to make a positive difference in people’s lives. It explores strategies for designing and measuring successful policies, as well as strategies for convincing others that proven policies are worth pursuing. It examines these strategies through the lens of specific policies that have proven successful regarding community building, economic prosperity, the environment, and the justice system. It asks students to consider the world they would like to live in and how they could help bring that world about.
