Citizenship Across America launched

WKU is helping students create their own meaningful learning experiences.

Through a new partnership, Study Away and the WKU Institute for Citizenship & Social Responsibility present Citizenship Across America, a personalized for-credit travel program that connects WKU students with Americans making a positive impact on their community and their world.

Study Away takes the classroom beyond the campus border, allowing students, faculty and staff to experience first-hand the diverse resources and opportunities available throughout the United States. The ICSR encourages students to reflect on civic values, identify contemporary issues and develop skills necessary to create positive change.

Terry Shoemaker, ICSR program coordinator, said the partnership will result in more real-world experience for students. “The ICSR is committed to promoting careful reflection on civic values and engaging in critical analysis of contemporary social, economic, and political problems,” Shoemaker said. “The new Study Away program will help ICSR achieve these purposes in diverse contexts all across the United States.”

Students are encouraged to develop their own opportunities by working with ICSR and Study Away.

Study Away is a unit of the Division of Extended Learning and Outreach.
