The information below is intended to help faculty members learn more about the Civic Engagement Proficiency.
The following is a list of objectives that you may find helpful when you’re preparing to submit a course to the CCC for approval.
Students will demonstrate proficiency in civic engagement, through a designated course as approved by the Core Curriculum Committee.
Providence College students will be called to be impassioned and informed participants in an increasingly complex society and world. In that world, every citizen must be educated about public issues, trained to think critically through public problems, and able to devise solutions mindful of the common good. The Dominican tradition emphasizes education as a primary means to instill such values in students. Accordingly, our students must understand and engage with the civic world in order to grow into responsible citizens of a twenty-first century global community.
