BTC = (Civic Engagement + Social Change) x Global Context
Beyond the Classroom (BTC) engages talented and diverse undergraduates from the University of Maryland in a selective interdisciplinary living and learning community focused on civic engagement and social change in a global context.
The BTC program prepares students to be active and responsible citizens and leaders in a complex, multi-cultural, and global society. We encourage students from all disciplines and majors to realize and develop their potential through an integrated program of academic, experiential, and service components. The Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, the world’s largest nonprofit and nongovernmental sector, becomes a place of learning through exciting internships and civic learning experiences.
This blog follows all aspects of the program, and also provides links and resources of interest to members of our community.
