Registration is now open for the American Democracy Project’s 10th annual national meeting June 7-9, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas. You’ll find important information below about dates and registration fees, how to reserve a room at the Marriott Rivercenter, and about how to submit a proposal.

Each year, the American Democracy Project National Meeting brings together a community of individuals committed to civic renewal. This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary by reflecting on our most successful programs and initiatives, while also envisioning together new signature pedagogies and practices to strengthen our democracy. In a time of bitter partisanship and deep concerns about the future of our country, our work today is more important now than ever!

Our community college colleagues from The Democracy Commitment will join us in San Antonio as we again blend our annual meetings. Knowing that fifty percent of AASCU students come to us from community colleges, we look forward to enriching conversations about ways we can better work together to ensure that higher education is producing informed, engaged citizens for our democracy.

Call for Proposals

Due March 12, 2012

Civic Engagement 2.0: Re-Imagining, Strengthening and Deepening Our Civic Work

The theme for this year’s meeting, Civic Engagement 2.0: Re-Imagining, Strengthening and Deepening Our Civic Work, is inspired by web 2.0 applications (e.g., social media, blogs, Wikis) that are not only the next iteration of an existing application, but also facilitate collaboration, information sharing, and user-centered design. The theme poses the following set of questions: How can we make existing civic education and engagement efforts more student and citizen centered? What can we do to make ADP and TDC more interactive, participative and discovery driven? How can we harness new technologies to engage more students and/or to make our teaching and programming more effective? During our meeting in San Antonio, we will explore innovative ways in which to advance our civic work.

The 2012 meeting will be an outstanding program, with approximately 350 attendees, including provosts, other administrators, faculty members, students and community partners. The conference structure includes four plenary sessions, a set of featured speaker presentations and a series of concurrent sessions with multiple presenters.
