CLP: SOCIAL CHANGE PROJECT (SCP)
CLP Fellows are expected to research, develop and implement a Social Change Project (SCP) throughout their CLP experience. At the end of the fall semester of their senior year, they present their project at the CLP Social Change Ceremony. This is their opportunity to display their knowledge and implementation of Social Change and display their passion to their peers, administration, community members and family.
The SCP is flexible enough to allow CLP Fellows to choose the type of project based on their passion(s). As scholars of the Social Change Model of Leadership, CLP Fellows are empowered to identify opportunities to create, and support positive change in communities with which they identify. Projects are expected to be meaningful, empowering, problem solving, and most importantly sustainable for years to come. Additionally, third year Fellows are encouraged to involve first and second year Fellows with different aspects of the projects throughout the development of the project.
Social Change Ceremony:
The Social Change Ceremony is an annual (December) celebration of and for all CLP Fellows and the development they have engaged in throughout each year in the program. The primary focus of the ceremony is to recognize senior Fellows and their Social Change Projects. The ceremony begins with a reception allowing attendees to view projects and ask Senior Fellows questions about their projects. The reception is followed by a ceremony to individually and collective recognize the contributions of the seniors to CLP, their peers, their families and their communities.
