Resources for Campus Planning: Civic Institutional Matrix

Referenced in several articles in this issue of Diversity & Democracy, the 2012 report A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy’s Future includes a Civic Institutional Matrix designed to help campus leaders and stakeholders map commitments to civic learning and democratic engagement across an institution. For a complete description of the dimensions and information about using the matrix, download A Crucible Moment from www.aacu.org.

This matrix was inspired by the institutionalization rubric found in Making a Real Difference with Diversity: A Guide to Institutional Change (Clayton-Pedersen et al. 2007) and more fully developed in the Personal and Social Responsibility Institutional Matrix. For a more detailed matrix broken out by dimension of civic-mindedness, visit www.civiclearning.org.
