ABSTRACT
The article provides the description of a university undergraduate interdisciplinary capstone course that studied homelessness. The professors explain the instructional strategies they used to teach a course that was outside of their areas of expertise. Best practices of student choice, differentiated experiences, and student engagement were implemented in this required course. Through interdisciplinary study, out-of-classroom experiences, and service, students gained a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding homelessness. The activities and resulting student and instructor learning are shared.
