TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)- Indiana State University President Deborah Curtis discusses the school’s goals for students amid unrest over the death of George Floyd.
Curtis says ISU’s goal is to engage students in a conversation that’s more than an one time event for the next academic year, that helps students use the best structure of service learning.
Curtis says this would include a study of the challenges students are facing and what should happen next to create significant changes in society.
“That’s the effort here, to say ‘Yes, speak up, state your concerns, state your objections very profoundly,’ but then get engaged in the real heavy lifting which is ‘What should happen next? What should be the next steps?'” Curtis said.
Curtis also says the goal of ISU is for students to leave campus prepared to be engaged citizens, both professionally and in their communities.
