About CE Projects

Students doing civic engagement projects in their philosophy classes commit to making changes in their communities. The projects help students apply philosophical concepts to real-world issues and real-world experience to philosophical concepts.



“This project served as a way for me to understand the connections between philosophy and the environmental world—something that I had been searching for in many of my other philosophy classes.”
