College Civic Learning for an Engaged Democracy: New Urgency, New Vision, New Educator-Policy Leader Alliances

Activity: Attendance typesParticipation in conference


Across the country, community colleges, colleges, and universities already offer many courses and programs directly related to civic learning for an engaged democracy. In addition, there are exciting new models for exploring democracy’s aspirations, challenges, and future; practicing dialogues across difference; and involving all students in civic inquiry projects. But there are deep disparities in the types of programs offered across both higher education sectors and fields of study. Most important, most college students do not participate in this type of learning. Now it is time to explore ways that educators and policy leaders can expand civic learning in higher education so that all college students participate.
