Student Advocacy is pleased to invite campus academic and administrative departments, student organizations, and alumni to join us in our third year of affirming these values through engagement in thought-provoking and hand’s-on activities (such as panels, open houses, workshops, service opportunities, and tabling)! 

 

The purpose of Owl Creed week is to provide all members of the KSU community with opportunities to promote and apply the five action-oriented tenets of the Kennesaw State Owl Creed:

  • Personal and Academic Excellence
  • Respect for Others
  • Encourage Unity
  • Remain Faithful to Ideas/Determine Threatening Behavior
  • Develop an Academic and Social Community That is Civilized, Rewarding, and Dynamic

 

Intended Learning Outcomes

The Social Change Model (SCM) (HERI, 1996) is the theoretical framework utilized by Student Advocacy for educating students about the Owl Creed. The SCM was designed by educators to specifically help college students “promote deeper self-knowledge of one’s values, talents and interests, helping students to answer questions about who they are, what they stand for, and the depth of their capacity to engage with others collaboratively to facilitate positive social change” (Dooley & Shellogg, 2006, p. 21). All events associated with Creed Week will be evaluated for their relevance to the Creed tenet(s), the achievement learning outcomes driven by the SCM, and the desire to provide future Creed Week events.

The values associated with this model, commonly known as the “seven C’s”:

  • Consciousness of Self – awareness of beliefs, values, attitudes
  • Congruence – thinking, feeling, and behaving with consistency
  • Commitment –energy that motivates individuals to serve and drive the collective effort
  • Collaboration – working with others on a common effort
  • Common Purpose – work with shared aims and values
  • Controversy with Civility – differences in viewpoint are inevitable, but aired openly with civility
  • Citizenship – individual and collaborative groups become responsibly connected to the community and the society
