Center for Engaged Democracy

The Center for Engaged Democracy acts as a central hub for developing, coordinating, and supporting academic programs - certificates, minors, and majors - around the country focused on civic and community engagement, broadly defined. The Center, which is housed within Merrimack College’s School of Education & Social Policy, brings together faculty, administrators, and community partners to support such academic programs through a variety of initiatives and practices: compiling existing research and documentation to support new and developing programs; sponsoring symposia, conferences, and research opportunities to build a vibrant research base and academic community; and providing a voice and space for dialogue for the value of such academic programs across higher education.
