2017 Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Meeting
June 7-10: Baltimore, MD
The 2017 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Meeting (CLDE17) is a conference designed around an emergent theory of change adapted from elements of the 2012 Crucible Moment report. Like this report, the CLDE17 conference invites participants to consider what does a civic-minded campus look like? To this end, several threads within the civic engagement movement will be considered including: how to build campus cultures and contexts that foster civic ethos, civic literacy and skill building, civic inquiry, civic action, and civic agency.
