Abstract:

Over the past 15 years, higher education curricula have become increasingly focused on promoting civic engagement among the student population. Recent research suggests that facilitating active and responsible long-term political engagement requires a holistic and integrated approach. Accordingly, we see a continuum of higher education for civic engagement. We emphasize moving through the continuum toward student engagement projects with clear output and outcome goals, involving students working in teams, and repeating application of university resources where needs are great. Our “large civic engagement” project—creating an educational program that requires long-term participation, builds practical skill sets, establishes strong social networks, and connects student and community through public service employment--rests at the alternative end of the continuum. This paper focuses on development of the Local Governance and Leadership Program. This program seeks to create a new undergraduate program to prepare students for lifetime civic engagement as public servants. Curriculum and design are based on an assessment of needs identified by public service employers. Our ultimate goal is an alternate view of--and path to--the lifetime connection between students, university, and community that civic engagement efforts seek.
