“The American Democracy Project is a multi-campus initiative that seeks to create an intellectual and experiential understanding of civic engagement for undergraduates enrolled at institutions that are members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. The goal of the project is to produce graduates who understand and are committed to engaging in meaningful actions as citizens in a democracy.” — American Association of State Colleges & Universities
The Democracy Project is a collaboration between AASCU and the New York Times.
“To create a national conversation among many campuses about the theory and practice of civic engagement; to develop institutional commitment by involving senior administrators, faculty, staff and students; by addressing core institutional mission and purpose; and by focusing on civic engagement as a learning outcome for undergraduates; to initiate new projects, courses and teaching strategies, extracurricular programs, and other programs to increase civic engagement, supported by the national project office; to measure the civic engagement outcomes of undergraduates on participating campuses, and assess the impact of this project in contributing to greater civic engagement outcomes; and; to disseminate the models that result to a wide audience of higher education institutions, individuals, and policy makers.” — American Association of State Colleges & Universities
