The Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement initiative is run out of the Office of Student Engagement. Our mission is to aid in the development of student's civic-identity by creating opportunities for sustained learning and democratic engagement both on and off campus.
The Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Project is comprised of a diverse group of community experts, scholars, and other passionate members of our campus community, who want to build a stronger, more just, and more engaged campus community. We welcome folks from across the political spectrum, regardless of ideology or party-affiliation, who share in our vision for investing in and fostering a culture of civic and democratic engagement at Fairfield University.
The project empowers our students to engage in challenging, yet civil dialogue around the most pressing issues of today. By creating spaces and opportunities for students to engage in these conversations, we are fostering the growth and development of a culture whereby students feel empowered and have the necessary skills to assume leadership in their communities, whether that be on campus, in the local Fairfield community, or wherever they call home.
