EnACT allows students to analyze public policy while learning about politics and our government. Students learn about political discourse through the process of creating a policy portfolio. Students are introduced to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are asked to find the cause of one of these issues. Student projects attempt to solve one of the UN SDG's by creating their own public policy proposition. Students choose a public policy that will focus on one of the four following umbrella categories: environment, energy, social justice, and economy. In the EnACT elective, most student projects focus on zero hunger, gender equality, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, reduced inequalities, responsible consumption and production, and peace, justice and strong institutions.
