This fall, students who are interested in engaged scholarship will have the opportunity to declare for the newly-developed Engaged Scholarship Certificate (ESC). Sponsored by the Department of Sociology and the Swearer Center for Public Service, the ESC allows undergraduate students to investigate public, civic, and/or social justice issues that they are passionate about through the integration of academic study with community-based learning, research, and action. Visit our ESC webpage for more information.
