Infusing Active Citizenship throughout a Research University: The Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University
Hollister, Robert M.; Mead, Molly; Wilson, Nancy
Metropolitan Universities, v17 n3 p38-55 2006
The Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University is a university-wide initiative to prepare students in all fields of study for lifetimes of active citizenship. The driving concern for this is the view that the very survival of our democracy depends on increasing citizen participation in democratic processes, and that Tufts can play a leadership role by ensuring that its graduates are equipped and committed to do so. The experience to date of this uniquely comprehensive civic engagement model offers lessons that can be useful to other research universities.
