The Honors Program cultivates the next generation of solution-oriented, critical, and creative thinkers with the knowledge, skills, and commitment to have a positive impact on the world around them.
Through service-learning and other forms of civic education, our students develop real skills that will help them in their careers and as citizens. And they have a genuine impact on the community in the process.
Why Civic Service?
We want students to think of themselves as members of a community (local, regional, national, global), to be able to critically assess issues in that community, and to have both the skills and the motivation to act on those issues.
Civic Engagement can include service, but it can also include advocacy, political activity, and involvement with campus or community organizations. It can also include taking courses that directly prepare students to advance their impact on the world.
We encourage students to explore a variety of options, and narrow down to a few causes,
projects, or activities that mean the most to them.
