Community engagement is at the heart of the mission of our Honors Program, as it should be. The Community engagement requirement for the Honors Program is not just about ensuring that we give back to the Big Rapids and Mecosta County communities, but also about enriching the college experience of our students.
Community engagement inculcates a sense of civic responsibility, provides opportunities to develop intellectual skills by applying them to tangible problems, and expands students’ ethical and cultural perspectives. Each student in the Honors Program commits to at least 15 hours of community service a semester, some far more.
