Civic Engagement--Large and Small
Unformatted Document Text:  undergraduates in community problem solving and civic engagement activities. • Build an infrastructure of support and connection between students, faculty, MPA students and public service partners, to include formal mentoring, regular “staff meetings,” social networks and joint civic engagement projects. • Fill in the “civic engagement continuum” by designing “small civic engagement” projects that teach skills needed in future public service, and serves as tools to recruit governance project students and support governance projects activity. The governance project can thus extend CSUS well up the civic engagement continuum. For the student, it changes civic engagement from mandated, one-time, and input-based to ongoing, financially and intellectually rewarding, and outcome-based. Ultimately, CSUS can create a “pipeline” from small but meaningful civic engagement projects to the governance project to public service employment to the MPA program to leadership in public service. For the university, it expands instruction, research, and service from knowledge-based to skills-based and engagement-driven. For the community, it harnesses new and potentially limitless energy to pressing public problems through voluntary and vocational civic engagement. We can expand opportunities for students, close the gap between public service employment supply and demand, and expand ties between students, the university, and the community. 23

undergraduates in community problem solving and civic engagement
activities.
Build an infrastructure of support and connection between students, faculty,
MPA students and public service partners, to include formal mentoring,
regular “staff meetings,” social networks and joint civic engagement projects.
Fill in the “civic engagement continuum” by designing “small civic
engagement” projects that teach skills needed in future public service, and
serves as tools to recruit governance project students and support governance
projects activity.
The governance project can thus extend CSUS well up the civic engagement
continuum. For the student, it changes civic engagement from mandated, one-time, and
input-based to ongoing, financially and intellectually rewarding, and outcome-based.
Ultimately, CSUS can create a “pipeline” from small but meaningful civic engagement
projects to the governance project to public service employment to the MPA program to
leadership in public service. For the university, it expands instruction, research, and
service from knowledge-based to skills-based and engagement-driven. For the
community, it harnesses new and potentially limitless energy to pressing public problems
through voluntary and vocational civic engagement. We can expand opportunities for
students, close the gap between public service employment supply and demand, and
expand ties between students, the university, and the community.
