Got Civic Engagement?
Civic Engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes (Ehrlich, 2000, vi.).
What is clubLEAD?
clubLEAD is a brand new program on campus that allows ASUN-recognized clubs and organizations to be recognized for their level of civic engagement.
- Purposefully direct Clubs & Organizations toward Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement.
