Created and Designed for Community Colleges
TDC’s Action Civic programs advance the idea that a student-centered, project-based approach to civic education which develops skills, knowledge, and dispositions necessary for our 21st century democratic practice is vital to the future of our democracy.
TDC’s civic and democratic learning programs assist in the development of the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make a difference.
TDC’s civic and community engagement programs were created to advance our commitment to inspire community colleges students to make a difference in the civic life of our communities.
TDC’s political and democratic engagement programs are designed to advance democracy through political institutions, organizations and activities.
In collaboration with the Center for the Study of Community Colleges, member institutions will administer a survey to assess community college students’ civic agency, behavior, and knowledge after at least one year of attendance at a TDC member institution. Results can guide institutional civic efforts.
