To actively engage our students in a learning process that is grounded in service, citizenship, and ethical awareness.




Thoughtful integration of service, citizenship, and ethical awareness requires a close examination of curriculum and pedagogy. Recognizing that we are located in a small rural state with limited resources faculty must think of new ways to unit these concepts with their course material. Further, studies indicate that student reflection is a predictor of openness to new ideas, ability to see issues in a new way, “increased commitment to use of public policy to achieve social justice, and a more systemic locus of problem causes and solutions" (Eyler & Giles). While laudable goals they are not without challenges.
