The purpose of the council is to strategically integrate civic engagement through:
NSU Civic Engagement Council consisting of representative from the American Democracy Project, Student Affairs - Center for Student Leadership and Community Engagement, each academic college, Futures Institute, Herb Rozell Scholars (Big Event), NSGA, and Housing - Living-Learning Community on Civic Engagement, Continuing Education and Athletics. Local community civic leaders and interested campus community members beyond the identified representatives will be encouraged to serve on the council.
The President’s Cabinet approved the proposed Civic Engagement Council membership.
The NSU Civic Engagement Council first meeting will occur January 2012. The Council will focus institutional efforts on evaluating programs and services in order to strategically plan for the 2015 Carnegie Community Engagement Classification. The outcome of the Spring 2012 semester will be the completion of institutional review of existing programs and services targeting civic engagement. The next phase will identify program and service gaps that need to be addressed in order to qualify for the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification.
