Education for Civic Societies and Sustainable Communities was started to establish a North American curriculum that will foster a regional civic mindedness among students in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
A portable curriculum developed in conjunction with several community-based organizations, businesses, and government agencies strengthens students' understanding of the North American civic society and how people can and should actively participate in planning their local and regional futures.
Through this project, students probe how local and North American issues intersect to shape a regionally focused civic society and sustainable community.
Students work in numerous interdisciplinary-based settings, including, but not limited to, immigration; environmental organizations; community-building programs and organizations; local, state, or national governments; and resource use and preservation organizations and agencies.
Students develop skills to pursue careers that focus on public policy, community-building, resource preservation, community legal issues and access (immigration and emmigration.)
