Inspired by Eric Liu’s You Are More Powerful than You Think and his notion of civic power, this interactive workshop will introduce the concept of community colleges as “Civic Powerhouses” generating power in the civic life of their students and campuses. How can community colleges harness their true public purpose by educating for democracy and sending it out to making a difference in the civic lives of the community that they serve?
The institute will explore model programs in diverse community colleges that are effectively advancing learning and student success through civic engagement and a strong commitment to the public purposes of higher education.
Through a series of panels, small group dialogues, and larger conversations, we will explore the unique challenges and opportunities of community colleges and their critical role in preparing students to be informed, active, and mobilized leaders in their communities, states, and the world.
