The American Democracy Project


  • News & Education

ADP’s goal is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences to be informed and engaged, ready to tackle current and future issues to ensure a thriving and equitable democracy.

The American Democracy Project (ADP) is a network of nearly 300 state colleges and universities focused on public higher education’s role in preparing the next generation to be informed and engaged in an equitable civil society. ADP was established in 2003 as  a nonpartisan initiative of AASCU in partnership with The New York Times .

Since its inception, ADP has organized national and regional meetings; national programs, institutes, webinars, and workshops; and thousands of campus initiatives, including voter education and registration, curricular and co-curricular projects, professional development, special days of action and reflection, speaker series, and award programs.
