Learning in Community (LinC) Series

The LinC series is an educational workshop and training series focused on supporting students who are interested in community engagement, social justice, democratic engagement, advocacy, activism and philanthropy.  Sessions address one or more of the following areas:

  • Alternative Breaks (AB): Students will gain the knowledge and skills to plan and execute a meaningful alternative break experience for group members.

  • Democratic Engagement (DE): Students will engage in dialogue around pressing social and political issues. Students will learn how to engage across difference and examine ways to create change through the democratic process.

  • Leadership Development (LD):Students will focus on expanding the knowledge and skills necessary in creating positive change.  

  • Reciprocal Community Partnerships (RP): Students will explore key principles of engagement and how to address challenges of creating mutually beneficial and socially just partnerships.
