Educating Students for Civic Engagement is a three-week (February 11-29) online course to learn about how student affairs professionals can educate students to become citizens, scholars, and leaders in their professions, their communities, the nation and the world. Both champions and critics of higher education are demanding that colleges and universities get serious about educating future generations of citizens who are committed to tackling society’s most pressing issues. Participants in this course will gain: understanding of what is civic engagement and why it is central to a college education; knowledge of the state-of-the-art developmental models and program examples; and access to resources for designing programs to achieve desired student learning outcomes.
