    Making a Difference Through Community Engagement: Learning Syracuse's History, Shaping its Future (Virtual Sample Class)

    Monday, April 29, 2024 at 7:00 PM until 8:00 PMEastern Daylight Time UTC -04:00

    What does civic and community engagement look like when students cultivate meaningful relationships with the city, dialogue with community leaders and stakeholders, and foster meaningful change?

    In this class, consider the history of the City of Syracuse and how Syracuse University students majoring in Citizenship and Civic Engagement (CCE) are helping shape its future. CCE students partner with legal aid firms, refugee empowerment organizations, housing development organizations, and educational enrichment programs to affect change as part of their major. This class will be led by Professor Junko Takeda, who teaches in the Department of History and also leads the CCE Program. By attending, you'll broaden your understanding of Syracuse and consider the many opportunities you'll have to impact our community by incorporating your interest and passion for engagement into your college experience.

    Want to know more about the CCE major?

    Students at Syracuse spend four years taking classes, attending events, joining clubs, and developing their paths towards their career choices. Students majoring in CCE take an extra step: they get to know the City of Syracuse by learning about its complicated histories; applying theories of citizenship; and developing partnerships with civic leaders, advocates, and non-profit organizations across Onondaga County and beyond. The major in CCE can be combined with any other major at Syracuse, making it a good fit for anyone with an interest in this kind of work!
