Alvernia University taking the lead in civic engagement


Alvernia Univeristy has been selected to participate in a national initiative on civic learning and democratic engagement. The university has been named one of fewer than 100 colleges and universities in the nation as a Lead Institution by NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, the leading voice for the student affairs profession.

As a participating institution in NASPA’s initiative, Alvernia will continue to encourage students’ civic development through thoughtful community partnerships, engaging leadership opportunities, and democratic participation.  

“Alvernia is pleased to be selected to participate in NASPA’s network of institutions dedicated to developing students’ sense of civic identity as civic engagement is a core value of higher education,” said Dr. Joe Cicala, vice president for university life and dean of students. “Being recognized as a national leader in this field is a reflection of quality of our current efforts and also our ongoing commitment to inspiring students to challenge themselves through leadership and service roles moving forward.”

A charter member, Alvernia is also in its second year as one of the Lead Consulting Institutions for the initiative.
