Civic Learning Network Mission
The Civic Learning Network is a collaboration of GVSU students, staff, faculty, and community partners working together to strengthen civic learning on campus and in the west Michigan community. Civic learning refers to the formal and informal processes by which people learn how to translate democratic principles into everyday practices that "nurture social responsibility" (NAPSA: Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Focus) and create agency for change. The Network synthesizes resources for all community members and offers credentialing pathways for students interested in focusing on civic learning in their studies at GVSU.
- Building a network of faculty, staff and students to support and develop civic learning initiatives at GVSU
