WKU’s Institute for Citizenship and Social Responsibility (ICSR) has released its annual report for the 2015-2016 academic year. This year’s report documents growth across virtually all of the ICSR’s curricular and extracurricular programs, including the academic minor, Third Tuesday Teas (T3s) and the Social Justice Speakers Series.
The report is available at the ICSR’s website, alongside other ICSR records, at http://www.wku.edu/icsr/icsr_records.php
ICSR Director Dr. Judy Rohrer opened the report by saying, “My third year with the ICSR has exceeded expectations on every front and made two things very clear. First, the exponential growth in our minor is inherently tied to our dynamic programming. Second, the synergy between curriculum, programming and research is what makes the ICSR unique and innovative.”
The report details the 250 percent growth the ICSR’s curricular program in Citizenship & Social Justice has experienced this year as well as the ways that the ICSR has partnered broadly to bring social justice awareness and education to the WKU and Bowling Green community. The ICSR cooperated with 17 university and community entities to bring its contemporary and socially conscious programming to WKU this year, including Kentuckians for the Commonwealth and the WKU Office of International Programs. The ICSR hosted 21 events and supported or co-sponsored another 13 this year.
About the ICSR: The Institute for Citizenship & Social Responsibility was founded in 2009 and became a part of the Department of Diversity & Community Studies in 2012. The ICSR works tirelessly to promote and facilitate civic and political engagement on WKU’s campus and in the region. For information, visit www.wku.edu/icsr or call (270) 745-3218.
