Our Programs

Created and Designed Specifically for Community Colleges
The Democracy Commitment was created to address the unique challenges and opportunities that community colleges face in preparing future Americans to be informed, active, and mobilized citizens in their communities, states, and the nation. We offer a series of programs that advance civic learning and engagement while supporting our members valuable connections with national organizations along with a network of American community college campuses that are intentionally committed to democracy for the benefit of their students and communities. TDC's programs are created and designed specifically for community colleges.
Awards and Recognition

TDC annually recognizes exceptional work of students and faculty who have advanced the work of democracy on their campuses and in their communities.

Members have exclusive opportunities to participate in national initiatives creating an interconnected web of students, campuses, and communities committed to democracy.

Through workshops, regional summits, and national meetings, our members have professional opportunities to develop skills in civic learning and democratic engagement and to learn from others across the country exchanging ideas on best practices to advance this work.


TDC has amassed a national clearinghouse of program designs, curricula, and project development strategies for community colleges. Member institutions have access to these materials and ideas which extend beyond volunteerism embracing civic work broadly to include the democratic practice.
