Civic Engagement

Civic engagement is a form of community engagement that emphasizes active participation in efforts, by members of a community, to work together to make informed public decisions and take action towards addressing social injustices. At North Dakota State University, civic engagement means carrying out one’s role—as a scholar, teacher, administrator, or student—without losing sight of the fact that each of us has a responsibility to be informed and active citizens in our community, capable of creating change for the betterment of society as a whole. Civic engagement involves collaboration, thoughtful discussion, respect for the opinions of others, and problem-solving.

At NDSU, there are a variety of civic engagement initiatives helping to further the land-grant mission of the institution and provide outreach and support to the larger community. These initiatives include Community Engagement Forums, Tapestry of Diverse Talents, and sustainability programming

Check out the upcoming Events and Drives and get involved!
