 Mission
Mission Statement:
In support of Purdue University's express purpose as a land-grant institution, to educate and serve the citizenry of the State of Indiana, the mission of the Purdue ad hoc Task Force on Citizenship Education is to advance initiatives that prepare students not only for careers and jobs, but also equip those students with the knowledge, skills and commitment, to be active and effective citizens.

This mission emphasizes:

1. Citizenship as a valued educational goal.
2. Service-learning as a valued educational strategy.
3. Interdisciplinary cooperation as a central means to facilitate these outcomes.
4. Awareness of alternative approaches to citizenship, and of alternative forms of learning and understanding, as evidence of informed, reflective scholarship

The core initiatives supporting this mission are:

1. Fostering of curricula opportunities blending traditional academic practices with community service.
2. Development of mutually beneficial partnerships with community-based agencies, area K-12 schools and corporate or governmental entities.
3. Provision of a responsive forum for discussion (by faculty, students, and the community) of concerns related to citizenship education and public service.
