SAL--Social Action and Leadership--What's it all about?
The SAL wing is based on the Social Change Model for Leadership Development (SCM), a non-hierarchical model of leadership development. Based on this model, the learning outcomes for the Social Action and Leadership Living and Learning community are:
- Students will develop an increased understanding of their own cultural identitiy through critical reflection of their beliefs, values, attitudes, and emotions
- Students will increase their ability to interact with their peers by developing a willingness to understand conflicting viewpoints and engage in the creation of shared aims and values as a community
- Students will become aware of themselves as a member of a global community with the capacity and responsibility to serve as leaders for change for their community and the world
