Coe College is a national, residential small liberal arts college that provides students with the opportunity to study within the arts and sciences, as well as professional programs, in an urban setting. The college has a distinctive practicum requirement that requires students to engage in their communities through internship programs in the local region and through study-abroad experiences that encourage students to engage with broader global communities. The mission of the college is to prepare students for meaningful lives and fulfilling careers in a diverse, interconnected world. This Civic Action Plan is designed with two key goals in mind:

  1. Improve the ways in which community engagement is documented and assessed at Coe (Internal Assessment and Impact); and
  2. Improve the ways in which community engagement is included and highlighted in professional development at Coe (Professional Development).
