We're so grateful to our Skyhawk community for another record-breaking #GivingTuesday!
FLC ENGAGE, a student-centered program of FLC's Political Science Department

The Fort Lewis College Engagement Collaborative, or FLC Engage, is a group of FLC students, faculty, and staff who share a mission to engage Skyhawks in social issues and civic affairs most important to them. We work to answer hyperpolarization and gridlock at the national level with pragmatic local problem solving and dialogue, supporting informed and effective civic engagement with nonpartisan, inclusive programs and resources.

All of our programs connect FLC students to the community, elevating them as careful, nonpartisan researchers and voter education experts. One example is the ballot initiative project where political science students work with members of the local League of Women Voters to create nonpartisan, carefully researched video voter education guides that community members can refer to as they figure out how to cast their vote on the many state and local ballot amendments and propositions. Another example is our Community by Conversation series that brings students, community members, and leaders together to address the most pressing issues facing our community while practicing skills for having authentic and respectful discussions across political differences, all with the help of political psychology students studying better political dialogue.

Your gift to FLC Engage supports these important programs and also goes to paid student intern positions, or FLC Student Engagement Specialists, like me. Our job is to develop and implement programs like these while gaining important personal and professional experiences. Thanks for your help elevating FLC students to do good work in the community while empowering us to use our own voices and develop our leadership skills.
