ECCE Speaker Series Mission

Through its events, the ECCE Speaker Series strives to

  • increase understanding of issues of citizenship and common concern among UIS students;
  • engage the UIS community and larger regional and global communities in important conversations about the public good; and,
  • inspire its audience to participate in the conversations, and act in the world as engaged citizens.

The Speaker Series is founded on and promotes the following ECCE learning outcomes for our students:

  • recognize the social responsibility of the individual within a larger community
  • practice awareness of and respect for the diversity of cultures and peoples in this country and in the world
  • reflect on the ways involvement, leadership, and respect for community occur at the local, regional, national, or international levels
  • identify how economic, political, and social systems operate now and have operated in the past
  • engage in open-minded and ethical decision-making and action
  • distinguish the possibilities and limitations of social change
