Event description: 

Civic leadership is leadership for the common good. It is about activating people and ideas — whether through politics and government, volunteer service, culture, or everyday community engagement — to solve shared problems, to bridge divides, and to remedy injustice. It is vital to any self-governing society. And it is learnable by practice. In all cases, leaders need to be able to cultivate values in communities and motivate others to embrace their outlook on society. This initiative seeks to provide our campus with the vocabulary and tools to discuss leaders’ roles and their involvement in communities. This initiative seeks to provide the campus with the vocabulary and tools to discuss leaders’ roles and their involvement in communities.
