Each year, Weber State picks a topic or theme on which to focus many of the campus’s engaged learning projects for that year. The 2014-2015 theme is “Food Matters.”
To successfully live and learn in this community for the 2013-2014 school year, students are expected to do two things:
1. Participate in Civitas: Civitas is a community engaged scholar program at WSU that helps students integrate civic engagement into their higher education experience. Students meeting program requirements graduate with "Non Sibi, Sed Civitas" (Not for self, for community) noted on their transcript, as well as wear an honor cord and pin at graduation. To participate in the Living and Learning Community, students must register for the one-credit Civitas class and complete the requirements of Civitas. Further information about the Civitas experience can be found here.
2. Create, Connect with and Participate in Projects surrounding “ Food Matters”: Students in this Living and Learning Community will create projects or events and/or will connect with existing campus projects/events in order to participate in the larger Weber State discussions about and action “Food Matters.”
To enroll in this community: When filling out your Weber State Housing Application, simply check a box next to the Community Engaged LLC. Additionally you should place as your top preference Residence Hall 3 when listing which halls you would like to live in.
