students in action

Civic engagement experiences are opportunities for you to contribute positively to society and connect to your local, national, and international communities.

Civic engagement experiences should be grounded in civic and social responsibility and should emphasize collaboration with community stakeholders. Civic engagement experiences can be practiced through social activism, public scholarship, community advocacy, and direct service.

Civic Engagement experiences should entail a minimum of 60 hours.

  • Immersive Project: a minimum of five days where the student spends at least 40 hours of the 60-hour minimum requirement immersed in the community.
  • Ongoing Project: a minimum of 60 hours within a 12 month period focused on a single community partner or on a single issue.
