About UC's Campus Theme
Exploring Key Issues
One of Utica College's most enjoyable traditions is the "Campus Theme," a year-long opportunity for all members of the College community to explore issues of great social importance from a variety of viewpoints. Events sponsored by other campus organizations, offices, or programs may all participate in and be recognized for "theme related" activities. The theme committee reviews proposals for theme sponsored events and contributes, as approved, to the funding of events that foster the campus theme. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to participate in and suggest:
- Public events, including presentations by nationally recognized public figures
- Classroom discussions
- All-College forums
Campus Theme 2013-15: Drivers of Change
The Campus Theme for the academic years 2013-14 and 2014-15 is Drivers of Change. If there is anything constant in the universe, and indeed at Utica College, it is change. We are living during a time of constant transition. The theme Drivers of Change lends itself to all academic disciplines and all aspects of life, and as such, provides us with an opportunity for truly creative programing.
The Campus Theme Committee welcomes your ideas, and your energy. We are eager to support your programs as they bring a new understanding of what drives change both now and in the future.
