Civic engagement includes an awareness of public issues and active participation in the community. Students apply what they have learned and generate new knowledge across disciplines through research and scholarship.
The interdisciplinary Community Engagement and Social Change minor offers students a core analytical, experiential, and theoretical framework for understanding issues of social inequality and community knowledge—and examining strategies for social change—through sustained community engagement. Student interests may include social justice and activism, food and the arts, social entrepreneurship, or government and public policy. The minor can be paired with any major. Details and application information are available on the minor web page.
