Mission, Vision & Philosophy

We are committed to educating students through curricular and co-curricular experiences that enable them to explore and enhance their civic identities. Our pathways are direct service, service-learning, charitable giving and philanthropy, community relationship building and organizing, voter engagement, advocacy, and activism. These tools provide the necessary strategies for students to bridge the ideals of volunteerism, justice, and democratic engagement.


We guide students from volunteerism into active citizenship and inspire their pathways to make positive, long-lasting impacts in their communities.


Civic Life will lead in educating students to remove systemic barriers through justice, collaboration, sustainability, and responsibility.


Our programs succeed in exposing students to meaningful service that challenges beliefs, creates authentic relationships, and promotes reflection. As students engage, they develop a self-authored roadmap to transform into the next generation of global leaders.
