The Democracy Commitment has grown to 78 members with some 200 campuses across 21 states, and we are looking to continue to expand.
In the annual update that TDC Co-Founder and De Anza College President Brian Murphy recently distributed to all member presidents, he encouraged each of them to reach out to one other community college president who is not yet a TDC member, and we would hope that each of you, as TDC Campus Coordinators and friends, will do the same this upcoming academic year.
In the coming weeks, we will be updating some of our promotional materials to include a fresh TDC FAQ sheet and a one-pager on the importance of civic engagement in higher education. Already, we have worked to create a TDC testimonial sheet featuring TDC member chancellors, presidents, faculty members, and students.
We intend to make these productions available to you as they are completed, and we hope that these resources will be helpful to you as you reach out to your colleagues and connections about the value of educating today’s community college students for democracy.
