This minor is focused on civic engagement and service with Park’s motto of Fides et Labor as its inspiration. It seeks to combine academic coursework with service to the community – be that at the local, national, or global level. Student activities in the community are integrated into the classroom to transform and enrich learning, and conversely, what students learn in the classroom can be applied in the community to encourage engaged and informed citizens.
Students can earn one (1) credit hour for every forty (40) hours of service work up to a maximum of 12 hours of academic credit in CE 200. A minimum of 120 hours of documented service work are required for this minor. Students are required to provide a portfolio of their civic engagement experience for evaluation.
