AACU’s Peer Review Spotlights Justice, Community and Leadership Program!


Cover page for Peer Review“These civic-rich departmental designs seek to increase students’ comprehension of their discipline’s investigations, enhance voice and agency, offer hands-on practice in collaboratively addressing challenging public problems, and introduce students to moral, ethical, and civic responsibility issues that are likely to be part of their professional lives,” said Caryn McTighe Musil, senior scholar and director of Civic Learning and Democracy Initiatives, and director of the Civic Learning in the Major by Design project at the AAC&U.

Peer Review, the quarterly publication of the Association of American Colleges and Universities spotlights the Justice, Community, and Leadership program as a national case study for innovative civic learning and democratic engagement academic programs. Included in the edition “Civic Learning in the Major by Design,” the latest Peer Review issue highlights different departmental and disciplinary designs that incorporate learning for civic and social responsibility into the requirements and pedagogy of a student’s major and specialized programs that integrate civic learning and social responsibility as an outcome for all their majors.
