A series called Civic Dialogues, designed to focus greater attention on civic engagement in higher education, took place earlier this year. The six-part series was organized by the California Community Colleges’ Success Network (3CSN), a collaborative venture by California colleges, including Cerritos College, College of the Canyons, Los Angeles City College, Cal State Dominguez Hills, Cal State Los Angeles, and Cal State Northridge. They are the recipients of “Bringing Theory to Practice” grants to create civic engagement pathways among California’s two-year colleges and four-year universities.
The series featured national experts, scholars, and practitioners sharing and discussing the critical importance of civic engagement along with educational practices and models for increasing meaningful engagement on campuses. Kettering president David Mathews and Kettering senior associate Harry Boyte were both guest speakers.
