Paradise Valley Community College is participating in The American Democracy Project and the launch of The Democracy Commitment, two national initiatives focused on preparing college students to be informed, engaged citizens for our democracy.
The Democracy Project promotes civic engagement and a better understanding of citizen responsibilities in a democratic society among young people through a series of education-based services and programs.
The American Democracy Project (ADP) is a multi-campus initiative focused on higher education’s role in preparing the next generation of informed, engaged citizens for our democracy. The project began in 2003 as an initiative of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), in partnership with The New York Times.
The goal of the American Democracy Project is to produce graduates who are committed to being active, involved citizens in their communities. The 250 participating colleges and universities, as members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, have been described as “Stewards of Place.” As today’s undergraduates complete their studies and return to their communities, universities must prepare the next generation of citizens to become tomorrow’s “Stewards of Place.”
