Engagement Fellows

The Citizen Science Engagement Fellows program is a collaborative academic–student affairs initiative focused on identifying and organizing a civic engagement cocurricular experience for first-years during their January term. Instrumental in designing opportunities to explore concepts of community service, civic engagement, and science education, Engagement Fellows can explore their own ideas about engagement in the community.

Civic Engagement

Opportunities for Involvement

Among the College's basic principles is a fundamental belief in the link between liberal education and democracy, and Bard is firmly committed to promoting and sustaining projects that engage its students, faculty, and administrators with some of the most important issues facing society. Through the support of the Dean of Student Affairs Office and the Center for Civic Engagement, students attending the Citizen Science program can participate in projects throughout the January term which promote such critical civic skills as active listening, collaboration, leadership, creative problem solving, ethical decision making, and information literacy.
