The requirements for the upcoming class of the Presidential Citizen Scholar Program include the following:

Spring Semester - Sophomore Year

Civic Engagement: An Introduction for Presidential Citizen Scholars (2 cr.)

This course will familiarize the incoming Presidential Citizen Scholars with the importance of civic engagement and provide a foundational understanding of what it means to be an active and engaged citizen. Students will have the opportunity to collectively identify a community issue, fully understand the reasons and causes for that problem, and then collaboratively develop an action plan for how to address it.

Fall Semester - Junior Year

Attend monthly Presidential Citizen Scholar Meetings

Attend two PACE approved events

Spring Semester - Junior Year

Civically Engaged: A Capstone for Presidential Citizen Scholars (2 cr.)

This course provides students with an opportunity to put their education into action! Students will individually identify community issues and walk through the process themselves and ultimately develop ways to solve these problems.

*Students must also participate in a 4 credit Civic Engagement Across the Curriculum Course (CEAC), an approved 1-credit IDIS course, OR an internship through a non-profit or governmental entity or through The Washington Center. This requirement can be completed at any point prior to graduation.
