Learning Goals

Local-Global Community Engagement is a student's ability to meaningfully interact in the various communities to which they can belong (campus, local and global). Rooted in the principle of EDI, it creates opportunities for students to make meaning of their own identity, their belonging, and their individual and collective impacts in local and global communities.  

Self-Development is a student's process of building and understanding who they are as individuals and their impact on others and society. Self-Development is important as students face challenges, learn to adapt, and discover what is important to their identities
