We explore, sociologically, several fundamental social problems in the United States and the world. Particular emphasis will be placed on the examination of how social inequality contributes to each particular "brand' of social problem. I am particularly interested in developing "solutions" to the major challenges we face and students are involved in examining and participating in their own communities as we seek to understand and participate in creating a more equitable society. Great fun, and lots of learning! Please join us!
