Civic Honors Final Project

As the final component of the Civic Honors program, each student will design and present a project which exemplifies and synthesizes the student’s civic experiences and development.

This capstone project can take one of several forms, allowing the student to select one which best fits his or her personal philosophy, civic goals, and style of expression, such as:

  • a reflective essay which integrates aspects of his/her academic and community endeavors, describes his/her civic philosophy, development, and goals, or challenges others to become more civically responsible and engaged;
  • an analytical paper which identifies, describes, and offers solutions to a community need, issue, or problem;
  • a legacy project whereby a new program or service is produced or implemented by a student and then turned over to an agency to be continued or sustained.
