In teaching civic engagement at Illinois State University, we strive to develop civically responsible individuals who embrace their membership in communities and society by owning social issues and working to be a part of the solution, which requires ethical and civic judgments and interventions when appropriate. Illinois State University's values are at the core of this minor as students will prepare to participate in social change as well as develop an individual awareness of social responsibility.
The minor includes IDS 398.02 Professional Practice: The Service Learning Experience in Civic Engagement (Syllabus and Internship Packet) is a professional-practice course which is a culmination of the minor as the student engages in some aspect of service learning in the community.
The field of Civic Engagement strives to create civically minded individuals who gain a sense of self-awareness as a citizen, participate in community service, develop an appreciation of diversity, comprehend the interdependence between communities, societies, and the rest of the world, grow an understanding of the democratic process, display critical thinking within the arena of democratic conversations and social issues, become effective at solving problems and promoting change, integrate personal reflections on civil service, social issues, and course content.
