Students in a number of curriculums can form teams to build vehicles, bridges, canoes, sustainable energy projects or create digital media and compete with students at the national level. Students' ability to understand their curriculum can be greatly increased through these out-of-classroom experiences and they learn important leadership skills along the way. Funding supports materials for the projects and transportation costs to the national competitions.
Part of students' success of working in teams in the classroom, living with others in the residence halls, participating in community service projects and in national academic competitions, and preparing for life-experiences after graduation can be greatly accelerated when they participate in weekend and day-long student leadership training programs. Programs focus on effective team management, learning to lead, resolve conflict, manage group dynamics, resolve ethical dilemmas, and determine strategies for improving communication among individuals. Students learn and practice these skill areas during student leadership programs sponsored by Student Life and the director of civic engagement and student leadership programs.
Alfred State students are active in a number of projects in the local community and elsewhere in the country that help others in dire need. Students volunteer their time and often some of the skills they have acquired from their curriculum (e.g., building construction, medical assistance, architecture, culinary arts, surveying) to help those less fortunate. Funding for civic engagement projects goes directly to support housing, food, and transportation costs for these students. At no time are any of these funds re-directed to the College or any other organization. The director of civic engagement and student leadership programs coordinates these student opportunities for the College.
“I enjoyed the civic engagement trip to Gowanda. It was great helping the families that needed help fixing their lawns. It made me feel like I accomplished something by helping these families and taking some weight off their shoulders. It was a good experience for me.” -Kimberly Rook, member of Habitat for Humanity
