An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Study of the Complexities and Responsibilities of Being A Contributing Member of Society Understanding the responsibilities and complexities of being a contributing
member to society is important because every student is already a member of several societies: family, community, state, national, and global. As they graduate into adulthood, their contributions to society will change dramatically. It is essential for students to examine what membership in a
society entails and how to balance societal responsibilities such as paying
taxes and forming governments with individual responsibilities such as finding food, shelter, and education for one's self and family. Do contributions to society come at the expense of personal development, happiness, and well-being? Can we, as individuals, survive by merely "looking out for number one" or must we make significant contributions to
societal development?
