Community Impact Pathway
The Community Impact Pathway offers students a guided journey through community engaged learning experiences intentionally designed to develop PSU’s four Habits of Mind and eight NACE (National Association of College and Employers) competencies. This tiered programmatic approach to co-curricular engagement supports students from exposure to service oriented activities, up through engagement in social action programs, and ultimately to a culminating leadership experience. To complete this pathway, students must engage in and reflect on five experiences at the Basecamp Member Level, two experiences at the Climbing Volunteer Level, and one experience at the Summiting Conscientious Citizen Level. Students who complete the Community Impact Pathway receive recognition on their co-curricular transcript and are honored through the Office of Community Impact upon graduation.
How was this pathway developed?
The Office of Community Impact designs programs based on the Active Citizenship Continuum, which was developed by Break Away. In this way, students have the opportunities to deepen their awareness of social issues and the ways in which we can address root causes in advancing social justice.
