“College students who participate in civic engagement learning activities not only earn higher grade point averages but also have higher retention rates and are more likely to complete their college degree. They also demonstrate improved academic content knowledge, critical thinking skills, written and verbal communication, and leadership skills.”

As we continue to create pathways for the college to promote civic engagement, we have compiled a faculty guide to share resources for civic engagement within academic scholarship. This often takes the form of service learning. We hope this collegewide civic initiative will build pathways to civic literacy across all disciplines and help our students reach academic and personal success.
