                The Democracy Commitment at ACM


Engaged Students

Allegany College of Maryland is proud to announce its participation in The Democracy Commitment.  The Democracy Commitment is a national initiative for the development of civic learning and democratic engagement among America's community college students.  The Democracy Commitment began in the spring of 2011.  Allegany College of Maryland's president, Dr. Cynthia Bambara, attended the launch of The Democracy Commitment at The New York Times in November 2011 making ACM one of the first 100 community colleges nationwide to be a part of this movement. 

The Democracy commitment will provide a national platform for the development and expansion of programs and projects aiming at engaging community college students in civic learning and democratic practice.  The goal of the project is to see that every graduate of an American community college receives an education in democracy.
