There so many activities available to get your students engaged!
Utilize the MCC Civic Engagement Scorecard to get ideas, track your students' involvement and encourage students to be active at MCC and in the community.
We have two Canvas courses to promote civic engagement and to provide resources in one place. One for faculty who want to get involved in civic engagement projects; with training and more information. The second Canvas course is for students. Students can access the scorecard for grading as well as get announcements on things happening.
We created the Civic Scholar recognition program and all of the points for this award will be kept on the student Canvas page. Please see below for details on the Civic Scholar recognition program
