I hang out with my friends and play video games. I thought about joining a club, but have just never done it…I don’t really know why. I like sports - - I played in high school, just haven’t done anything at JMU.” “Yeah, I know, this is my last chance before I’m kicked out of school. No, I’m not really going to any clubs here. I know I need to get my act together so I can stay at JMU; I like it here. I’ve been hanging out with friends and partying a lot - - I don’t really have friends outside of ones that like to party. I don’t really know what I want to do when I leave JMU - - I haven’t decided on a major yet.” “I really don’t feel like I’m going to stay at JMU next year. I don’t feel like I fit in here. I haven’t really joined any organizations because I’ve been focusing on my academics. I don’t get along with my roommate. I’m upset that there is nobody like me at JMU. I miss home.” Theory-Based Program Design Astin's Involvement Theory 1 By offering opportunities for positive student - faculty interactions we believe that developmental characteristics that have been linked to positive academic and social outcomes (e.g., sense of belonging) will improve. Knefelkamp and Widick’s Developmental Instruction (DI) model 1 Broadly speaking, the civic learning program challenges students to complete a certain number of civic learning hours within a structured and diverse on- campus setting. The program then supports the student with a mentor throughout the process to help make connections between the experiences and the student’s own personal growth (outcomes). “[My mentor] helped me to see that there is way more to the college experience than going out and partying. Before my trip to the hospital, all I wanted to do was party. I didn’t want to go to any JMU events…now I’m more worried that I am going to miss out on a cool show going on here at campus.” *Based on data collection (N ≈ 40) Building Partnerships  Residence Life  University Health Center  Office of Sexual Assault Prevention  Women’s Resource Center  University Recreation  Career & Academic Planning  Disability Services  LBGTA Programs  Center of Multicultural Student Services  Conference Services  University Program Board  Financial Aid  Academic Units (e.g., Communication, Kinesiology) Student-Centered Program Goals 2 Program-wide Goals Goal 1 : Students will increase their self knowledge & understand how their personal actions impact and influence the university community.
