The Citizenship LLC explores community involvement and civic engagement through activities and experiences that allow students to get involved in both the USM community as well as the Greater Portland community. Students will learn about different ways to connect with the communities which they are a part of both now and in the future, as well as the benefits of being an involved citizen. Our Citizenship LLC is slated to be housed in Upton Hastings Hall for fall of 2018.
