“The way we run our classrooms
and the way we connect those classrooms to our communities can have a
lot to say about whether our teaching and learning practices are
advancing a more diverse, socially just, and democratic culture.”
José Z. Calderon, Race, Poverty,
and Social Justice: Multidisciplinary Perspectives through Service
Learning (quoted in the National Task Force on Civic Learning and
Democratic Engagement publication, A Crucible Moment: College Learning
and Democracy’s Future.)
This is an invitation for staff, faculty, and administrators tocreate a community of higher education leaders that responds to the call for action outlined in A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy’s Future: A Crucible Moment, written by The National Task Force on Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement,reminds us that, “A socially
cohesive and economically vibrant US democracy…require[s] informed,
engaged, open-minded and socially responsible people committed to the
common good and practiced in ‘doing’ democracy….Civic learning needs to
be an integral component of every level of education, from grade school
through graduate school, across all fields of study.”
