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.
