Partner Spotlight: 66th annual National Conference on Citizenship
By Jen Domagal-Goldman, National Manager, American Democracy Project
I was able to attend last year’s National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) Conference in Washington, D.C. before I came to work with the American Democracy Project — and had the privilege of seeing ADP founder and AASCU Vice President for Academic Leadership and Change George Mehaffy and my predecessor Cecilia Orphan at the conference. NCoC has been an important ADP partner, working with a number of our campuses and colleagues as they create State and City-level Civic Health Indices.
For the first time this year, the NCoC Conference is being held outside of Washington, D.C. (and, unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend). The 2011 Conference consists of a series of events during Citizenship week, September 15 – 23. The theme for this year’s conference is Redefining America’s Social Compact.
For those of you in the Philadelphia and Pheonix areas, however, the Conference is a great opportunity to see and hear about the important work of NCoC. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear ADP’s Missouri State University faculty member, Mike Stout speak on September 23 as part of the session on “21st Century Expressions of America’s Social Compact.”
