Civic Engagement

Civic engagement: step one in the process of how we support you in sharing your passions with the community in Forest Grove, and other communities internationally.

So, what is it?

Civic engagement is the methods through which citizens participate in a community to improve its conditions for everyone in that community. On our campus, civic engagement looks like working with others in Forest Grove, and other nearby cities, to do meaningful work that provides you with learning and skill development opportunities.

As one of the four cornerstones of our diverse academic experience, civic engagement is integrated into your education. Our professors integrate it into their coursework, our students embrace it in their everyday lives, and our community thrives on doing all that we can to give all that we can.

We have countless courses that integrate civic engagement into the academic experience. These courses are available in nearly every field of study: Exercise Science, Psychology, Gender and Sexuality Studies, English Writing and Literature, Public Health, Philosophy, Business, Theater, World Languages, Education, Disability Studies, Political Science, Social Work, and others.

After reading that list, you might be wondering, what don’t they offer civic engagement in? Not much. It’s important to us that we give you the tools to be an effective professional in whatever you are passionate about. Because of this, we want you to know how to change the world using what you care most about; so we teach how to change the world through the lens of nearly every academic discipline under the sun.

Still curious about what you might take for civic engagement? Here are some ideas:

  • Applied Nutrition
  • Applied Theater
  • Child Development
  • Healthy Communities
  • Integrated Media Project Design
  • ...and so much more!
