UWF to participate in national learning initiative

The University of West Florida has been selected to participate in the NASPA Lead Initiative, a national effort centered on civic learning and democratic engagement. UWF is one of 70 colleges and universities to receive this designation from the nation’s leading voice in student affairs.

As a participating institution in the initiative, UWF will continue to encourage students’ civic development through thoughtful community partnerships, engaging leadership opportunities and democratic participation. University leaders will also participate in scholarly activities to share information and resources with representatives from other participating institutions.

“We are 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 Lauren Loeffler, director of Career Services at UWF. “Being recognized as a national leader in this field is a reflection of UWF’s quality of our current efforts and also our ongoing commitment to community engagement.”
