"Purpose: To develop, establish, and assess an interdisciplinary, cross-divisional leadership and service program that (a) includes both curricula and co-curricula components; (b) promotes engaged pedagogies and campus-wide civic engagement; and (c) marshals and maximizes existing institutional strengths.

How: 1) Extend BTtoP Start-up project into a longitudinal evaluation of the academic, personal, and civic student outcomes of engaged learning; 2) Broaden knowledge of the MSU BTtoP movement and garner support beyond the Center, SDCL, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and select faculty and administrators; 3) Develop and establish a Service Leadership Minor Program; 4) Design a comprehensive co-curricular program component to support development of the service leadership competencies, building upon the existing ELLC.
