True Stories of Engagement: Higher Education for Democracy
Higher education’s role in the work of
democracy has never been more important
or more contested than it is right now.
Our stories are grounded in evidence derived from experience
and from systematic investigation, and they are infused with
the commitment of higher education to the pursuit of truth.
Come together to hear and to tell the stories of that work.
Learn from each other about the practice of bringing people
together across differences in pursuit of shared values and goals.
Challenge ourselves to understand how we can more effectively
communicate to a broader public the part higher education plays
in creating the communities and the country we seek.
Build a diverse web of faculty, staff, administrators, students,
and partners committed to higher education’s public purposes.
