Civic learning and democratic engagement

In 2010, the Global Perspective Institute Inc. was awarded a contract by the Department of Education to increase postsecondary education's leadership in promoting “civic learning and democratic engagement.” GPI, in collaboration with American Association of Colleges and Universities, (AAC&U), organized a national dialogue to better understand and promote civic engagement. A report titled, A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy's Future, can be found on the website of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, aacu.org/civic_learning/crucible.
