DPA 8534 - Civic Engagement


Fundamental to our democracy is the active involvement of citizens. Today we hear a lot of talk about civic engagement. But what is civic engagement? How do the public and nonprofit sector become models of citizen participation? This course will explore the discontents and the promises, introducing students to a new model of engaged democratic practice which is deeply political in an older sense of politics as engaging different interests and views in solving common problems and creating common things.
