Webinar: Community Colleges as Civic Power Plants: Generating, harnessing, and spreading civic power

November 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Inspired by Eric Liu’s You Are More Powerful Than You Think and his notion of civic power, this webinar will introduce the concept of community colleges as “Civic Power Plants” generating power in the civic life of their students and campuses. How can community colleges harness their true public purpose by educating for democracy and sending it out to make a difference in the civic lives of the communities that they serve? This webinar will feature examples of civic engagement from across the diversity of the community college realm.
