Civic Engagement courses at UM-Flint are based on High-Impact Educational Practices designed to deepen students’ learning and prepare students to be educated citizens. According to the Association of American Colleges & Universities, civic engagement courses (also known as experiential learning, service-learning, and community-based learning courses) benefit students by providing opportunities to apply course concepts in the real world and reflect on their learning experience in ways that synthesize their academic learning with first-hand experiences (AAC&U, 2008). The program provides UM-Flint students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of diversity, gain career experience, and make professional connections. Civic engagement courses also help students develop their professional networks and meaningful relationships in the community, which can lead to internships or even permanent jobs after graduation!
