TDC has amassed a national clearinghouse of resources, publications, program designs, curricula, and project development strategies for community colleges. All member institutions have access to these materials and ideas which extend beyond volunteerism embracing civic work broadly to include the democratic practice.
ADP & TDC Engage the Election Joint Initiative Resources
The Democracy Commitment has partnered with our four-year public colleges and universities colleagues AASCU’s American Democracy Project to create a year-long Engage the Election 2016 initiative powered by icitizen, a leading civic engagement app. This initiative will features a series of comprehensive nonpartisan activities including a series of webinars focused on various aspects of political engagement.
Citizenship Under Siege Project Resources
In an age of fractious differences about this topic when finding common ground seems elusive, The Association of American Colleges and Universities and The Democracy Commitment are joining with seven community colleges to orchestrate a series of public forums, each with accompanying programs and educational resources to bridge the rifts. Organized under the common theme, Citizenship Under Siege and supported by a grant from The National Endowment for the Humanities, the events are framed through the powerful historic, ethical, and narrative lenses of the humanities
