Grant Summary

$25,000 over six months to Campus Compact, a national higher education association made up of nearly 1,100 members and dedicated to campus-based civic learning. At its 30th anniversary in 2015-16, Campus Compact invited its members to sign a civic action statement and commit to advancing civic and democratic learning in a systematic manner. Many institutions offer scattered courses and co-curricular activities to prepare students for citizenship. This planning grant, made under the “Faculty Planning and Curricular Coherence” initiative, supports teams of institutions with developing coherent civic education pathways while reducing the total number of course offerings. The goal is to move away from ad hoc offerings and transform (rather than add to) the curriculum to strengthen civic learning outcomes.
