 Cross-Cultural Urban Integration Seminar 

In the Cross-Cultural Urban Integration (CCUI) Seminar, students learn from a variety of community teachers including leaders of local nonprofits, faith communities (including those of religions other than Christianity), and other community efforts. This class creates space for students to reflect on their roles in engaging with healing work in a diverse world and engage with difference with respect and humility. 

*With approval, Hope College students can take the CCUI Seminar as their senior seminar.
