Provost’s Teaching and Learning Summit
Civic Engagement and Student Learning
October 22 – 26

“ An education that teaches you to understand something about the world has done only half of the assignment. The other half is to teach you to do something about making the world a better place. ”
~Johnnetta Cole, Director of the National Museum of African Art

Please join the UW Oshkosh community as we explore how civic knowledge and engagement contribute to students' learning. Register here.

Civic knowledge consists of an awareness and understanding of the various political and social processes that impact the nature and quality of life in local, state, national, or global communities. It also encompasses the cultivation of skills that may be useful in public life, like effective communication and ethical reasoning. Civic engagement means having an appreciation for and applying the values gained from civic knowledge in real-world settings, directed at improving the quality of life in the communities of which one is a part. Civic knowledge and civic engagement emphasize learning, reflection, and action in order to create better communities. (UW Oshkosh USP Definition of Civic Knowledge and Engagement)
