Civic Engagement

What does the face of citizenship look like? How are you involved in your community? What do you perceive to be a strong civic life?

 

Civic engagement means:  

  1. Active collaboration that builds on the resources, skills, expertise, and knowledge of the campus and community to improve the quality of life in communities in a manner that is consistent with the campus mission (as cited in the IUPUI Civic Engagement Task Force, Doubling the Numbers Civic Engagement Task Force Report, 2014).
