ADP: A Year in Review and a Look Ahead

2013 was a good year for AASCU’s American Democracy Project — in large part due to the civic capacity and commitments of each of you! What has your campus accomplished? What civic learning and engagement efforts do you have planned for 2014?

Accomplishments:

What to look forward to in 2014:

  • National screening and live webcast of Robert Reich’s documentary film Inequality for All is scheduled for Thursday, February 20 beginning at 5 p.m. Eastern. Watch your email for details!
  • We’re in the process of imagining a new Civic Engagement in Action series initiative with Keene State College and TDC related to addressing the growing conditions of economic inequality in the U.S. Stay tuned!
  • The call for proposals for our 12th annual national meeting is open and you can register now for the meeting in Louisville, Kentucky from June 5-7, 2014. We look forward to thinking seriously about how to foster civic pathways for our students!
  • Two new eCitizeship webinars:
    • “Project Management for Student Leadership” (January 23, 2014)
    • “Sustaining Student Leadership on Civic Engagement Projects” (February 20, 2014)
  • Our 10th annual Stewardship of Public Lands: Politics and the Yellowstone Ecosystem faculty seminar is scheduled for August 4 – 9, 2014. You can register now!
  • We’ll be hosting a regional meeting with MN Campus Compact on September 29, 2014 at St. Cloud State University. Details will be forthcoming!
  • ADP’s Civic Agency initiative will be undertaking a repository of civic agency-related course syllabi in collaboration with Imagining America and Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University.
  • We’re partnering with the Kettering Foundation to develop a monograph about democratic dialogue and deliberation on ADP campuses in 2014.

Happy New Year!
