For the seventh year in a row, we will feature the ever-popular Campus and Friends Showcase!  There is no cost to participate.  Simply complete this registration form no later than Monday, May 7th to reserve your spot.

The Campus and Friends Showcase will take place on Saturday, June 9th 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  The Showcase is designed as an exhibit hall with tables available for presenters. People love to see what other campuses have done with the American Democracy Project and other democratic learning programs on campus.  The Showcase also serves as an important networking opportunity for project participants to connect with national leaders in the civic engagement movement.

This year the Showcase will occur simultaneously with the TDC/ADP Poster Session.
