Since 2011, Rutgers-Camden Civic Scholars have epitomized the civically and academically student at our campus, still while often holding part-time work, participating in other campus commitments, commuting to campus, and managing a full academic course load. How do these students successfully engage? How can they find meaning in civic engagement in the context of broadly busy lives? As civic engagement, experiential learning, and other beyond-the-classroom opportunities have become a learning standard, so have the challenges in assessing the strength of experience and articulation of development as these students weld their academic and professional trajectory in an increasingly connected yet refracted world.

The TIPP Model - i.e., Time, Impact, Purpose, and Place - is designed for the 21st century college student to assume a real-time perspective of their experience through these fundamental concepts, establishing a sense of civic urgency and productivity that connects with academics while contextualizing the various threads of their individual experience. Students typically have a broad but undefined sense of their purpose, little sense of impact, a trained sense of time, and a fraught sense of place when entering experiential or civic engagement learning opportunities. TIPP inspires students to reflect on the meaning of their work and service, the limiters of their engagement, and how outcomes can be established at any point of their service. Practitioners from any academic unit are encouraged to share this simple philosophy to help students calibrate their long-term goals and create pragmatic pathways towards those outcomes.
