Special Topics in Organization Studies: Practicum on Employment Discrimination: EEOC

549A

Course Description:
The purpose of the practicum is to expose students to EEOC procedures, the kinds of cases that result in discrimination complaints, and the ways in which these cases can be resolved, through an internship at the Nashville office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The practicum includes training in EEO laws, observation of intake interviews, case analyses, and case write-ups. Students may also be involved in attempts to mediate disputes. The practicum takes one semester to complete and requires about 5-6 hours a week of work (a half-course work-load). The course is limited to three students per semester (see Ray Friedman for permission to register) and is offered in the fall and the spring. [2]
