Intercollege Minor in Civic and Community Engagement

The Civic and Community Engagement minor provides an opportunity for students to extend their education beyond the classroom through engagement in socially meaningful public scholarship in both pre-existing and newly developing community projects. This minor entails situated as well as experiential learning.  Students apply, test, analyze and re-formulate academic material in the context of public issues and community settings.  Engaging in “learning-by-doing” allows students to communicate across differences, fulfill civic responsibilities, gain insight into personal values and world-views, develop civic skills including observation and listening, and further develop career interests and professional goals.
