Civic Engagement

This identity/allyship rope team seeks to create a space for all community members from broad and diverse political  perspectives to engage in civic dialogue, to access connections, opportunities, resources, and experiences relevant to students’/alums’ development and success, and to share their voice and gain knowledge on different political views and civic opportunities to contribute and engage. This community is designed to nurture important civic discourse meaningful to all members of society and the pursuit of their civic duties. We call them “rope teams” because these communities, as many as you are interested in accessing, are here to support your student and alum journey as well as to provide you with an opportunity to support the journey of those you want to help succeed.
