First Year Seminar: I Serve
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
This FYSEM embodies what it takes for one person to develop community and civic engagement beginning with a public issue and carrying it though to change agent. Students will learn how to research, inform, discuss, engage, support, fund and create change around a topic of their own personal commitment and passion. One person can make a huge difference in communities using the five-phase community engagement plan. Community engagement involves people in the decisions that affect their lives. Civic engagement is the process used to collaborate and act together to create positive change. This course also covers topics and issues related to the college experience. We will work together to understand the nature of a liberal arts education, to begin planning your academic career, and to develop life long learning skills. In many ways, we will be taking an intellectual and personal journey together as you explore new academic interests, identify goals, and discover new things about yourself. As your professor, I am looking forward to working with you this term!
