Education for Democracy

Posted by Campus Compact on January 15, 2019

EDUCATION FOR DEMOCRACY was launched to ensure students have the skills, knowledge, and motivation to be active and informed participants in our democracy. As polarization and disaffection threaten to damage our democratic republic permanently, we must prepare students to engage effectively and constructively in public life. Education for Democracy is an important new non-partisan initiative designed to help heal and reinvigorate our democracy.

Education for Democracy has the potential to reach more than 6 million students — one third of undergraduates in the country — at more than 1,000 public, private, two-year, and four-year institutions. Education for Democracy aims to build the knowledge, skills, and motivations to catalyze responsible and effective student participation in public life and policy.

Included is the Democracy Learning Space, a new Open Educational Resources platform coming soon!  Learn more >
