For Faculty Advisors

The information below is intended to help faculty members learn more about the Civic Engagement Proficiency.

Requirement Objectives

The following is a list of objectives that you may find helpful when you’re preparing to submit a course to the CCC for approval.

Civic Engagement Proficiency courses will:

  • Offer students the opportunity to examine, in depth, a public problem or civic issue that concerns them.
  • Explore the nature of social, cultural, political, and/or environmental forces, institutions, and ideas that influence public problems and their resolution in public life.
  • Encourage students to consider their own role in the larger community and their responsibilities within that community. This consideration would include an analysis of citizen obligations to promote key elements of the common good, such as social justice, solidarity, human rights and dignity, participation, peace, subsidiarity, cultural and economic justice, and environmental sustainability.
  • Analyze the challenges associated with seeking the common good, (e.g., collective decision making, public program implementation, community service provision).

Notes

Study Abroad/Diversity Proficiency

A study abroad experience by itself does not satisfy the Diversity proficiency requirement. However, an approved study abroad course may meet the requirement.

Civic Engagement Proficiency

​​​​​​​​​​​Students will demonstrate proficiency in civic engagement, through a designated course as approved by the Core Curriculum Committee.

Why Civic Engagement?​​

Providence College students will be called to be impassioned and informed participants in an increasingly complex society and world. In that world, every citizen must be educated about public issues, trained to think critically through public problems, and able to devise solutions mindful of the common good. The Dominican tradition emphasizes education as a primary means to instill such values in students. Accordingly, our students must understand and engage with the civic world in order to grow into responsible citizens of a twenty-first century global community.
