Fulfilling Requirements – Civic Responsibilities

Liberal Learning courses can satisfy up to two civic responsibilities.

  • Gender
  • Global
  • Race & Ethnicity

Most students meet these requirements through courses.

Community Engagement

Community engagement is a requirement for all first-year students. About half meet this requirement through an FSP that has a community engagement component; the remainder fulfill the requirement through Community Engaged Learning Days. During these eight-hour service days, students meet with their FSP classmates to choose an issue of importance to the local community on which they will work, are provided an introduction to civic and community engagement, carry out the service work, and then are guided through a reflective activity.
