Learn product development and pitching, elevator speech creation, project management, marketing skills, and more in a fun, innovative space as you plan and implement the Langar@DU event. The event is one of the largest gatherings of the DU community on campus. Last year, students designed and developed the Langar@DU welcoming 800 people to DU’s campus!

This course is an experience of cross-cultural collaboration and communication with internal DU partners and local community leaders. Through the encounters provided in the course, you will serve the public good and make a difference through unity and diversity modeled on the Sikh Langar, an expression of shared humanistic values in the public sphere resisting division, violence, and bigotry.

This dynamic experience incorporates a multi-disciplinary, community-based approach reflecting proven new product launch, service delivery, project management, and implementation business frameworks. You will develop a critical and compassionate lens into how and why dialogue, as a communicative construct, enables cross-cultural connection in service of meaningful public collaboration.

The course culminates with the Langar@DU on DU’s campus, providing an immersive experience realizing the values of diversity, peace and co-existence through communication in action. Each student will share in the experience of unified community and actively participate in Langar@DU’s preparation and success. Upon completion of the course, you will have gained practical skills to engage professionally and effectively with external partners in order to enhance business and civic relationships and maximize the value of shared goals
