Scholar-Citizen Initiative


Political Science Majors!

Consider becoming a Radford University Scholar-Citizen.

Scholar-Citizens at Radford are engaged in the community through special SCI-designated courses.  In Political Science, that includes Dr. Corbin’s Politics of Disaster and Crisis, in which students participated in drafting a consultancy report for the Radford City Government; Dr .Tay Keong Tan’s Public Administration, in which students are consulting with the Galax Volunteer Fire Department and local NGO Our Daily Bread; and Dr. Paige Tan’s Model United Nations, in which students simulate the practice of real world diplomacy in an international body like the United Nations General Assembly. 

Scholar-Citizens also regularly participate in co-curricular events on campus supported by Scholar-Citizen.  These could include visiting speakers on political topics.  Lastly Scholar-Citizens regularly engage in service to make the world a better place.  They document their efforts through all the facets of the SCI program through an ePortfolio, an online portfolio of their development and evolution.

Scholar-Citizen designation on your diploma can show potential employers or graduate schools that you are already an involved, informed member of the community.  To learn more about Scholar-Citizen designation, please visit the Scholar-Citizen website.  

If you are interested in making your community—either local, state, national, or international—a better place, consider adding the Scholar-Citizen designation to your Radford program of study.
