College students and social change

Prompt and PDF for the text provided below. Must write a five page essay about one period about college students invoking social change. For example, you could write about the social change that African-Americans invoked when being the first student of color on campus and use different times that happened to help construct the essay.

i. Citizenship – Seeing oneself as part of a greater whole, engaged in community and aware of issues that affect the entire group.

i. Collaboration – The intent to work together and thus multiply effort, while also gaining multiple perspectives.

i. Consciousness of Self – One’s self-awareness, as shaped in part by the influence of others.
