Discussion: Social Change Vision: Community, Professional, and Academic
At ^^^^University, we believe knowledge is most valuable when put to use for the greater good, and we’re deeply committed to improving human and social conditions by creating and applying ideas in order to advance society as a whole. —^^^^^^^ University (2011, para 2)
This quote identifies ^^^^^^ commitment to focusing resources on making positive changes at all levels of society in order to improve the social conditions in which people live. Many social change efforts begin as small, community-based projects. For instance, a community that is struggling with teen drug use and violence might join together to build an after school youth center to help combat the issue. Social change efforts such as this one are often a motivating factor for individuals joining the helping professions. In the helping professions, this drive for social change is often a strong value, both personally and professionally.
For this Discussion, review ^^^^^^ mission, and focus on the social change aspect. Think about how this aspect of the mission relates to your personal and professional life. Then, reflect on social issues and social change efforts within your own community. Consider how these efforts might impact your professional goals and motivate you to be an agent of change.
Post a description of your vision for social change. Include how your personal vision complements ^^^^^^ University’s vision and mission, as well as how ^^^^^ University might help you achieve your professional and academic goals. Then, describe a social change effort that is currently going on in your community or an effort you think needs to take place in your community. Explain how this effort may impact your personal and professional goals—and ignite your passion to be part of the helping professions.
