Civic Engagement, Minor
What Can I Do with a Minor in Civic Engagement?
Students in the Civic Engagement Minor will learn the theory and practice of leadership and grassroots democracy that enables them to become powerful agents of creative change who are able to inspire and effectively work with others to address the key challenges of the 21st century - including climate change, inequality, deteriorating education, health care, intolerance, immigration, indigenous rights, sustainable food systems, appropriate technologies, and more. Through experiential collaboration with community partners in all sectors across our region, students will learn how to work with diverse constituencies to foster solutions that enhance the public good. Civic Engagement minors will learn to bring the arts of democratic leadership and effective citizenship to bear on whatever career they choose and will thereby become empowered to create a better future.
