Vitality of Democracy Renewed by Engagement

     The American Democracy Project seeks to increase the number of undergraduate students who understand and are committed to engaging in meaningful civic actions. The project grows out of a concern about decreasing rates of participation in the civic life of America in voting, in advocacy, in volunteerism in local grassroots associations, and in other forms of civic engagement that are necessary for the vitality of our democracy. There are 146 public colleges and universities participating in this project who are members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU).
