Being surrounded by creative, energetic, and motivated scholars is what separates Imagining America from other programs. Engagement Scholars have the resources, flexibility, and support to stimulate change, and promote sustainable development. As a scholar, I have met and worked with local leaders and educators who are committed to improving the quality of life and opportunities in Central New York. The best part of being an Engagement Scholar is the ability to explore and develop projects that you’re passionate about. Although Engagement Scholars work together for the same ideals that characterize SU’s vision of Scholarship in Action, each scholar has the freedom to work on their own projects, free of restrictions, with a great support team.
