Turning Theory into Practice

By Rachel Popovich

“My minor in Civic and Community Engagement assigned an educational degree to my interests in community service and my journey to finding a personal identity in the communities of Penn State and beyond. I use the skills and theories to which I was introduced in the minor to inform my decisions as a professional working with the public in a community hospital. I make an effort to find meaningful solutions with an interdisciplinary team because I understand that working together is more effective for greater change.”
