Leadership and Civic Engagement

Find your way here

Gold

Gold students engage in a community-based project that integrates personal and professional interests, the community, and developing leadership in others.  Students select an organization, group, or “cause” for which they can apply the leadership concepts and skills learned through the Leadership Challenge program to improve a real situation in a particular community.  Participants are responsible for identifying a need (with the assistance of the organization), developing alternative solutions to meet the need, selecting an alternative to implement, implementing the solution, and evaluating the result.

*GOLD IS A YEARLONG COMMITMENT, BEGINNING IN THE FALL SEMESTER AND ENDING IN THE SPRING SEMESTER*
