Lives of Commitment Application

The Civic Engagement Center educates students on issues related to global citizenship, assisting them with their personal discernment of values, ethics, and commitments towards contributing to the public good in meaningful ways.

As part of the Civic Engagement Center, the Lives of Commitment Program engages a select group of first-year students who are excited about getting involved in the community and engaging in meaningful dialogue about what is most important to them. Whether that be social justice, ethical practice or religious commitments, Lives of Commitment is a place to examine the meaning behind our life’s work. Students strive to infuse their work in the community with their current values and hopefully discover new commitments along the way.
