Spartan Civic Leaders

Spartan civic leaders

A First-Year Learning Community

The community will participate in activities to address issues of public concern and enact positive social changes. Students will select two social justice topics to explore and pair with local nonprofits that serve the community. Students will also relate social justice topics to their academics and future careers.

As a learning community, Spartan Civic Leaders will:

  • Assist students with their transition to college and their transition into their scholarly and professional identities.
  • Develop advanced knowledge of social justice issues and community awareness.
  • Use real-life experience to enhance the academic world and relate academic work to real-life experience.
  • Help scholars develop comprehensive transferable skills which can be applied to future employment.
