What is Civic Engagement?
Civic engagement is a broad term and includes a spectrum of examples ranging from volunteerism and community service on one side of the spectrum to public policy and politics on the other side. As one of the Central Six components of Transformative Learning, civic engagement is central to the mission of the University of Central Oklahoma, educating the next generation of college students to serve as active, ethical and engaged citizens within their local communities, the nation and the world.
The New York Times College Readership Program returns to the University of Central Oklahoma for 2012-13. Free copies of The New York Times are available to the campus community Monday-Friday in key locations throughout campus. If you use The New York Times in your course, please include The New York Times in your syllabus and send an electronic copy to Patti Loughlin, Ph.D., Director of the American Democracy Project, firstname.lastname@example.org or (405) 974-5491.
