The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) has worked to create the American Democracy Project (ADP) which is concerned with "higher education's role in preparing the next generation of informed, engaged citizens for our democracy." It's a laudable initiative, and this website provides information about the Project's work and outreach efforts. On the left-hand side of the site, visitors can look over 10 sections, including Resources, Participants by State, and eJournal of Public Affairs. Visitors shouldn't miss the journal section, as it includes access to past issues along with information about submitting manuscripts for consideration. Moving along, the Resources area includes publications from the ADP, including webcasts like Agents and Architects of Democracy series. Finally, the Civic Engagement in Action Series features a set of initiatives designed to "allow students to become deeply involved in substantive citizenship issues."
