“Me” and “We”: Civic Responsibility, Participation, and Engagement • At the Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery • June 3-5, 2013
This three-day, non-residential institute will engage students in academic, critical discussions on the history and concept of civic participation, responsibility, and engagement. The program will build upon the students’ general ideas of civic knowledge and seek to build cognitive civic engagement and engender participatory civic skills (such as collaborative decision making and deliberation).
The institute will also provide students with a brief historiography of social movements, and engage them in critical discussions surrounding the major issues and problems at the nexus of these historical moments. Students will be able to take advantage of the institute’s location, Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery.
