The Civic Engagement (CE) Certificate is designed to inspire you to get involved in the community and make a difference by applying coursework into real life challenges. Through the certificate you can apply your academic skills in civic engagement activities.
Enhance your degree with practical experience and in-class learning on civic engagement. The certificate provides you with the opportunity to engage and network with local community partners and create positive change.
The goal of this four-course certificate program is to raise awareness of current local, national, and global issues that affect our everyday lives and engage in civic action.
Civic engagement is a sense of responsibility towards one's community. Through civic engagement, individuals—as citizens of their communities, their nations, and the world—are empowered as agents of positive social change for a better world (Jacoby, 2009).
The goal of our program is to identify and work with your community to solve a problem or interact with institutions that represent our democracy. Join the certificate program and become a Partner for Academic Civic Engagement!
