2020 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) Meeting
June 3 - June 6
AASCU’s American Democracy Project (ADP) and NASPA are committed to advancing the civic engagement movement in higher education. Join them in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for their annual conference, which brings together faculty, student affairs professionals, senior campus administrators, students and community partners. The conference aims to ensure that students graduate from our colleges and universities—both public and private—prepared to be the informed, engaged citizens that our communities and democracy need.
The 2020 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Meeting (CLDE20) will facilitate exchanges of knowledge and develop a sense of community around our shared civic learning and democratic engagement work. This meeting is designed around AASCU’s 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?
