Civic Engagement

What Will I Learn?

As a student enrolled in the Civic Engagement Sequence at Heartland Community College, you develop civic skills in order to become more fully engaged in local, state, national, and/or international civic affairs. Upon completion of the certificate, you will develop and carry out a civic engagement project in the local community in the Activism course.

What Are My Options?

The Civic Engagement Sequence is designed for students interested in civic and/or political engagement who wish to supplement their plan of study at HCC with emphasis in this area. All courses in the Sequence are transferrable to most four-year colleges and universities. The Sequence is recognized by Heartland Community College at graduation, and will appear on an official transcript.

The Civic Engagement Sequence is also designed for students planning to transfer into the Civic Engagement Minor at Illinois State University.
