Stay tuned for upcoming Democracy Commitment events 


WHAT: Book Discussion

WHEN: Thursday(3/5) at 3:30 p.m.

WHERE: Humanities Room 24

WHY?  In our three years of work we have found that gathering to talk about a common reading has
furthered our understanding of "civic engagement."  The three brief articles were chosen from Civic Provocations.  Our hope is to deepen and clarify the nature of the civic work at ACM. The meeting is a good introduction for those new to civic engagement, as well as an opportunity for civic engagement veterans to expand their understanding.
WHO?  All are welcome, all are invited.  Please RSVP  to assure there is enough pizza and soda.

Given the nature of the meeting-you will need to read the articles prior to the session in order to discuss them.
