Options for Education Hours

Civic Engagement Scholars have the option to count up to 10 of their 30 total civic engagement hours as education hours through attending (virtually or in-person) events or other programs related to any of the forms of civic engagement (i.e. - community service, political involvement, philanthropic giving, advocacy, social responsibility, or participation in associations). Please review the requirements page for education hours examples, and the below list also provides date-specific examples of eligible education hours activities. Please note this is not a comprehensive list, only suggestions - Scholars can attend activities beyond this list of options and log them as education hours if they feel the activities align with a form of civic engagement. Contact Erin Corwin, exc390@case.edu if you have questions on if an activity could count as hours.

Check back regularly for additional educational programs throughout 2022-2023 academic year.
