New Resource Spotlight: Civic Agency Curriculum



Minnesota Campus Compact recently curated series of experiential workshops designed to help develop civic agency. The workshops are organized into the three themes—Self, Us, and Now—following Marshall Ganz’s public narrative framework (see Figure 18.5).

The experiential workshops in the curriculum are designed to help participants develop their civic agency – whether those participants are college/university students, staff, faculty, or administrators, other adults, or adolescents. You can use them in classes, clubs, organizations or informal groups, singly or multiple workshops together, whatever makes sense in your context.
