Rita E. Hauser Senior Lecturer in Leadership, Organizing, and Civil Society


In the first module of Organizing: People, Power and Change, students learn to form a leadership team, decide on a shared purpose and design a campaign to act on that purpose. In the second module, students organize the campaign: campaign kick-off, developing leadership, innovating tactics, engaging with power, and winning, losing, and learning. In lecture, we focus on that week’s challenge, drawing insight from cases, and other resources. In section, we coach each team on practices useful in meeting their challenges. We conclude with reflection, celebration, and what’s next.
