The effect of student growth can only be felt by the contribution that they make to society. Learning to take responsibility for the transformation of the community is a mark of students transitioning into adulthood.
In Academic City, students are encouraged to offer services to the community beyond their own circumstances. Working on civic engagement projects allows for guided independence, safe risk-taking, and guidance for reflection, assessment, correction, and sustained engagement.
Civic engagement projects open students to how project cycles work in the real world to solve social challenges. Working on small-scale civic engagement activities allows students to be involved in all the various stages of projects: from concept stage to planning, implementation, and through to completion and assessment. The hope is that students will be able to work on civic engagement projects that complement their majors and collaborate with course mates to achieve tangible and impactful results.
The other key feature of civic engagement is that it allows students to integrate with communities and situations in an intentional, participatory manner, and to develop a sense of empathy.
