The staff at the Jewett and Allbritton Centers are excited about continuing CSPL 120 (Civic Engagement Practice)!
Since the University’s reaffirmation of its commitment to engaging the broader public around some of society’s most critical issues in the 2018 Civic Action Plan, we have offered more programming and opportunities designed to help build student capacity for civic participation.
Civic Engagement Practice (CSPL 120) brings together the ever-growing and evolving community of students at Wesleyan who are invested in civic engagement to:
- Bolster student civic knowledge: the functional knowledge of government, history and culture, and current events.
- Bolster content knowledge across our focus areas: functional knowledge of the issues partners and community stakeholders seek to confront through programming, advocacy, education, or other means.
- Build skills: the broad analytic, communication, media literacy, time and task management skills, and others so critical to engaging effectively.
- Further develop civic identities: supporting students as they make sense of how to situate their experiences and beliefs within broader histories, and social and political contexts.
In order to enroll in this .25 course students must participate in a pre-approved civic engagement program (at a minimum of 60 minutes per week). To successfully complete the course, students must:
- Review the Cardinal Community Commitment (acknowledging review here)
- Subscribe to the Engage newsletter (if you haven’t already) by filling out this form.
- Submit a reflective essay by Tuesday May 9th 11:59pm
- Attend AT LEAST three 3 JCCP/Allbritton events
- Complete the CSPL120 Events Registration Form to confirm your attendance at preferred events.
