As we continue to shape the 2016 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) Meeting organized by the American Democracy Project, The Democracy Commitment, and NASPA Lead Initiative to be held June 2-4, 2016 at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown in Indianapolis, IN, we’re elated to announce the introduction of pre-conference sessions to be held on June 1, 2016. These topics were identified through the CLDE Planning Committee and feedback received through the 2015 CLDE Meeting.
The topics include:
- Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Assessment Workshop with ETS;
- Electoral and Political Engagement Institute with icitizen;
- Workshop for the ADP/TDC Economic Inequality Initiative;
- Democratic Dialogue and Deliberation Institute; and a
- Student Pre-Conference Institute.
Members of the CLDE community are invited to join in dialogue prior to the conference on social media using #FacesofCLDE. Our hope is that colleagues will come together to share why they are a proponent of Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement work in higher education. In turn, spreading the work of the great work that happens on each of your campuses.
