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.
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.

“Am I Registered?”
TDC has vetted online resources and tools to increase voter registration on member campuses and communities. Most of the the resources here are for voter registration information and verification. We also would like to introduce a TDC Register to Vote tool powered by Rock the Vote. Click Here For More Info.
“Where Do I Vote?” “Who/What’s on the Ballot?” “How Does it Work?”
Electoral education and engagement is essential to our democracy, and student engagement on our member campuses is a priority.
