Consistent with Southwestern’s core values, the OCEL encourages students to develop and act upon a heightened sense of responsibility to one’s community. Through community-engaged learning, individuals —as citizens of their communities, their nations, and the world— are empowered as agents of positive social change for a more democratic world. Southwestern students are active as community-engaged learners, activists, and volunteers in the community.
