Civic Leadership Academy

Advancing Civic Learning, Literacy, and Skill Building in Our Community Colleges
TDC's Civic Leadership Academy embodies a national commitment to preparing all community college students for citizenship as informed, engaged and responsible members of our society. TDC’s civic and democratic learning programs assist in the development of the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make a difference. Additionally, these programs inspire community college faculty and staff to engage students in shared decision making and in taking responsibility for making the classroom the best it can be as model for community and societal engagement.
