2022 Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Meeting
AASCU’s American Democracy Project (ADP) and NASPA are committed to advancing the civic engagement movement in higher education. Join us for our annual conference in June, which brings together faculty, student affairs professionals, senior campus administrators, students, and community partners. Together we will ensure that students graduate from our colleges and universities—both public and private—prepared to be the informed, engaged citizens that our communities and our democracy need.
Our 2022 Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Meeting (CLDE22) will facilitate exchanges of knowledge and develop a sense of community around our shared civic learning and democratic engagement work. The theme for CLDE22 is “Equity and Democracy” and offers a unique opportunity for faculty, staff, students, and administrators to come together, reflect on recent lessons learned, and formulate opportunities for future work.
CLDE22 facilitates exchanges of knowledge and develops a sense of community around our shared civic learning and democratic engagement work. This meeting is designed around our emergent theory of change, which poses four important questions:
Purpose: What are the key features of the thriving democracy we aspire to enact and support through our work?
Learning Outcomes: What knowledge, skills, and dispositions do people need in order to help create and contribute to a thriving democracy?
Pedagogy: How can we best foster the acquisition and development of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for a thriving democracy?
Strategy: How can we build the institutional culture, infrastructure, and relationships needed to support learning that enables a thriving democracy?
Participants will have opportunities to network and develop their civic-minded thinking and practices through plenary sessions, site visits, concurrent sessions, workshop sessions, posters, receptions, pre-conference sessions, and working meetings.
