SLC Certificate Picture

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).

Examples of civically engaged projects: 

  • Hosting a voting fair
  • Volunteering in a soup kitchen
  • Participating in clean-ups for city events
  • Designing an awareness campaign on the risks of bullying in social media
  • Serving on your neighborhood association

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!


Civic engagement is a call for action! Join us today.
