Reviving and Revising the Civic Mission: A Radical Re-Imagining of ''Civic Engagement''
Peterson, Tessa Hicks
Metropolitan Universities, v25 n3 p17-30 2014
Drawing on literature in the field and the author's own research, this paper argues that civic engagement is critical to the success of students and universities and should be enacted at all levels of educational policy and practices. Yet, it must be facilitated in a way that ensures that equity, justice, and an appreciation of diverse value systems and perspectives are included in the development of civic actors, civic learning, and shared projects of social change in local communities.
