A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy’s Future

Top of my reading pile (because I always have a pile of things I want to read!)… A Crucible Moment from the National Task Force on Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement.

A quick summary from the website…

A Crucible Moment calls on educators and public leaders to advance a 21st century vision of college learning for all students—a vision with civic learning and democratic engagement an expected part of every student’s college education. The report documents the nation’s anemic civic health and includes recommendations for action that address campus culture, general education, and civic inquiry as part of major and career fields as well as hands-on civic problem solving across differences. AAC&U thanks the Bringing Theory to Practice project and its supporters, the S. Engelhard Center, and the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation, for funding the design, printing, and dissemination of this publication.
