The mission of the Center for Civic Leadership is to foster engaged citizenship through integrated curricular and experiential learning opportunities. These opportunities help students develop the capacity to exercise civic leadership by better understanding themselves, their responsibilities as citizens, the complexity of social issues, and the mechanisms for creating sustainable change in Houston and communities beyond.
The Center for Civic Leadership will be recognized as a model for creating mutually beneficial university-community partnerships that promote positive, sustainable change. Our students and graduates will engage the world confidently and courageously, poised to take action on the challenges they deem most important based on their values, and they will exercise leadership as compassionate, critical thinking citizens whose engagement in communities reflects a dynamic process that continues throughout their lives.
