Bring the change you want to see in the worldPosted: December 14, 2011
If you think students’ participation in civic engagement is important to higher education and our democracy at large, we want to hear from you.
Please submit a brief blog ( 300-400 words, along with your photo, a brief bio and any relevant links or images you want to share). You can shape your post around the following question/s:
- Do you think it’s important for students to get involved in civic work on campus and in their communities at large?
- How can civic engagement benefit our democracy as a whole?
- What’s the biggest problem that needs solving where you are and how can students make a difference?
There is no right or wrong answer, we just want to hear from people like you and what you think about students’ participation in civic engagement and its’ impact on our society at large.
Our goal is to spread the word about the campaign and to show deep student interest ahead of January 11, 2012, when “For Democracy’s Future” will be launched at the White House.
It is critical that we can bring your voice to the White House and to the Department of Education to show that fixing our democracy is something that young people care deeply about, and have much to contribute to.
Please help us spread the word about this campaign with your community.
