Headline TBD

We invite presidents to join our collective of 23 (and growing) schools, representing a broad array of institutions. To be considered, presidents meet with the Citizens & Scholars team to discuss specific strategies for making civic preparedness central to their educational mission. Accepted presidents champion the Civic Commitments, share impact stories and progress reports annually, and receive support from Citizens & Scholars as they implement programming that bolsters democratic education.

Participating institutions are expected to uphold the Civic Commitments. Citizens & Scholars reserves the right to determine ongoing membership, contingent on schools making a good-faith effort to enact the Commitments and actively contribute to our democratic community.
