" As a student of the Taylor Leadership Institute at the University of North Florida, I recognize that one of the most impactful actions an individual can do to accomplish their goal is to work alongside other individuals with the same targets. The Millennium Fellowship challenges students to make social impacts that they can be proud of, but it also encourages them to step outside their own space to learn from those around them. I am incredibly honored to have been selected to be a Millennium Fellow and will strive to support both my community and my team. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Social Issues 101
Social Issues 101 aims to educate University of North Florida students about three selected social issues: pronouns and the gender binary, effects of race and class in America, and the refugee crisis in America. The project consists of lecture presentations to contextualize the social issue followed by an engaging discussion prompted by questions regarding how the social issue impacts students at the following levels: personal, community, and global. This will encourage participants to consider the complex social issues and possible solutions in a broad context first focusing on a personal view to help them understand how issues impact them as individuals, the local level to understand the community impact, and finally the global level to reflect on the broader, world-wide impact.
