This interactive discussion session focuses on the ways that higher education can promote the civic responsibility of college students and strengthen communities in the process. Drawing on his work in the field, and using concrete examples, Tom Ehrlich discusses how colleges and universities can equip students with the understanding, motivation, and skills of responsible and effective citizenship, and how communities and nonprofit organizations can benefit from neighboring institutions of higher education to promote their civic goals. The discussion includes teaching approaches such as community-service learning and community-based research; emerging issues involving the use of social media for promoting civic learning; and challenges facing community organizations in working with campuses.
