Experiential Learning

The political science faculty supports student's efforts to engage their talents, energy and initiatives in the community and the world.  We believe this activism connects the student with citizenry, creating deeper sense of citizenship and a sensitivity and connectivity with people of different cultures, races and socioeconomic backgrounds.
