The Engagements with the Common Good sequence culminates in the senior year with a capstone project in the student’s major. For example, seniors in the Communication Department can choose to take COM 472 Media for Social Justice or COM 474 & 475, Senior Convergence Seminars to fulfill the capstone requirement. In the Senior Convergence Seminars, students use multimedia tools to address a social justice topic. The multimedia project is then mounted on a website. The most recent Convergence project addresses the issue of domestic violence. The interactive web project is designed to inform elementary school teachers about domestic violence and provide ways to help students living with domestic violence. The project is entitled, “Children as Witness”.
