Webinar: Making Community Colleges "Democracy's Colleges" Again
Wednesday, September 16, 2020, 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM CDT
Category: Professional Development

In partnership with Campus Compact, this session explores the role community colleges do and can play in promoting a healthy democracy. Facilitators will share resources and guide students, faculty, administrators, and community partners in a discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing community colleges. As communities, states, and the nation confront multiple crises, including a pandemic, an economic recession, protests against racial injustice, deep political polarization, and rampant misinformation, community colleges can meet this moment and lead the way to strengthen our democracy through civic learning and democratic education.
