Advocacy Workshop Programming is based on Provost Scholar-identified concerns during the 2018-2020 academic years and integrating the five CASEL Social Emotional Learning (SEL) core competencies: self-awareness; self-management; social awareness; relationship skills; and responsible decision-making. Through developing their own ideas to create and/or support community initiatives, SLI participants can promote positive outcomes for themselves and their peers.

The Provost Scholars have identified three main areas to focus their efforts:
• Civic Engagement (CE) (learning how to connect and network with local to global institutions)
• Social-Emotional Intelligence Development (EQ) (self-regulation, civility, mindfulness, empathy)
• Developing Scholarship (DS) (improving the intellectual self and collaborating with others)

The Advocacy component of the SLI encourages participants to explore, research, and implement solutions to problems they have identified through the course of the University Intensive Seminars and the Advocacy Workshops. Each week has a theme based on the scientific process for problem-solving: Week 1 – Identification of a Problem/Hypothesis; Week 2 – Researching Background and Significance; Week 3 – Understanding Methodology; Week 4 – Summary of Findings and Future Steps. At the end of the four-week summer program, the Scholars will present their findings to their families, friends, and community stakeholders during a Capstone Presentation (August 7 @ 1:00pm) as a Zoom Webinar. The discussion will extend into action steps that the Provost Scholars could implement and evaluate in the future.
