ILCC-North Park University Program Coordinator
The Americorps VISTA at North Park University will be primarily responsible for developing the Catalyst 606 program. The Catalyst 606 is an urban-centric experiential learning curricular program in which students take the same classes in a cohort setting. Each of the courses have been redesigned to incorporate Chicago as the classroom. For example, an Intro to Statistics course called “Just Stats” will examine the role of statistical analysis in assessing urban justice issues such as redlining. The VISTA for 2017-2018 will help develop new tracks for Catalyst 606 that will enable students in other schools and majors to participate. The VISTA will also build capacity for the Office of Urban Outreach by forging new partnerships with community based organizations working on issues of poverty.
