Student and Institutional Engagement in Political Life

Produced in partnership between AAC&U and the Institute for Democracy and Higher Education (an initiative of Tufts University's Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service), this issue of Diversity & Democracy calls readers to examine how they can best support student and institutional engagement in political life. The issue highlights practices that advance educational goals related to political learning and explores the various roles that students, faculty, and administrators can play in creating a politically engaged and socially just democracy.
