TDC has amassed a national clearinghouse of program designs, curricula, and project development strategies for community colleges. TDC has vetted online resources and tools to increase voter registration on member campuses and communities. Most of the the resources here are for voter registration information and verification. We also would like to introduce a TDC Register to Vote tool powered by Rock the Vote. Additionally, The Democracy Commitment has partnered with our four-year public colleges and universities colleagues AASCU’s American Democracy Project to create s a series of comprehensive nonpartisan activities including a series of webinars focused on various aspects of political engagement. Member institutions have access to these materials and ideas which extend beyond volunteerism embracing civic work broadly to include the democratic practice.
BEST PRACTICE GUIDES
“What are the best practices for this work in community colleges?”
We have written and compiled publications that advances our dedication to the cause of democracy in higher education, and to make democratic skills available to all individuals who desire a voice and a seat at the table of local, state, and national discourse and action.
POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT RESOURCES
“Where Do I Vote?” “Who/What’s on the Ballot?” “How Does it Work?”
Political education and engagement is essential to our democracy, and student engagement on our member campuses is a priority. Most of the resources here are for voter information and ballot/candidate information to inform and educate student voters.
Partner and Friends Electoral Engagement Resources
We have also compiled a list of Partner and Friends resources vetted by TDC which offers valuable national connections with national organizations with the goal of preparing future Americans to be informed, active, and mobilized citizens in their communities, states, and the nation.
“What scholarly works and studies are there for this work in community colleges?”
Since 2011, TDC has led a charge to increase civic engagement resources for community colleges. This trove of publications stems from our efforts and is available to the public.
