公民参与和领导中心

Red

公民参与中心 & 领导 (CCEL) connects students to their community by providing volunteer opportunities, 实习, 学生就业, 以及社区学习课程. Students contribute to local initiatives and they develop crucial skills that will serve them well beyond the college classroom. Faculty draw upon the CCEL's host of community partners to provide students with hands-on projects that supplement their traditional classroom learning.

连接学生和他们的社区

A strong sense of community is one of the key pillars of 乐鱼官网. Marist students are given the resources to harness their interests and create a significant social impact on the local community and beyond.

公民参与中心 & 领导力将学术界与社会行动联系起来. 通过与全校教职工合作, we are able to offer Community Based Learning classes, such as Introduction to Professional Writing, 互动媒体, 在西班牙语世界交流, 以及《乐鱼官网》. In addition to fostering innovative teaching, we pride ourselves on exposing students to vital community organizations and new career paths.

以社区为基础的学习

公民参与中心 & 领导 promotes the principle that civic engagement and Community Based Learning (CBL) empower students to connect their academic work to their wider interests. Participation in CBL provides students with the problem-solving tools and confidence needed to generate positive change in their communities. Janet Eyler和Dwight E. Giles (1999), CBL提供 "...a form of experiential education where learning occurs through a cycle of action and reflection as students.” Combining academic coursework with hands-on activities and deep reflection has been shown to achieve real outcomes for the community and deeper understanding and skills for students. These experiences enhance awareness and, in turn, lead to more effective social change.

The Marie and Rupert Tarver Summer Internship Program

每年夏天, a cohort of highly motivated Marist students remain on campus to participate in the Marie and Rupert Tarver Summer Internship program, which enables undergraduates to work on a community improvement project in collaboration with a local non-profit organization. 参与者获得可观的津贴, 学费减免, and on-campus housing for the duration of the program. 作为项目的一个组成部分, interns affiliate with an approved nonprofit organization in the Hudson River Valley and complete agreed-upon goals and objectives during the summer term. Tarver Interns work with faculty and their nonprofit partner to design their internship project and identify the key issues that their work will address.
