[S]tudents in the Psychology of Discrimination class have engaged in collaborative community outreach to help educate others on the psychology of racism, classism and sexism. That outreach included a trip to the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club of Transylvania County to instruct youth on themes such as social identity, equality and privilege.

These examples of outreach by the Brevard College students to the community are a manifestation of an experiential, collaborative curriculum within the Psychology major.
