The SOCI 30 poster symposium was a shared space for students to discuss concepts and experiences learned in class with the campus community. During the quarter, students spent 16 hours engaged with the local community. This course requires students to analyze their civic engagement experience through a social psychological lens. In class, students learned about stigma, self-development, non-person treatment, and self-fulfilling prophecy (just to name a few of the theories). Posters provided information about their organizations, as well as how the course theories could be used to explain the structural disadvantages that these populations face. There were roughly 100 people in attendance.
