Waubonsee to Survey Students to Increase Civic Engagement

This spring, Waubonsee Community College will continue its efforts to foster civic engagement among students.

From April 20-May 4, the college will be among a host of community colleges across the country to take students through the national pilot of the Civic Outcomes Survey.

Created by The Democracy Commitment (TDC), a network of 125 community colleges with the purpose of increasing civic learning and democratic engagement among students, the survey will help assess students’ civic outcomes and identify the institutional characteristics contributing to greater civic capacity.

To pay for the survey administration, TDC has awarded Waubonsee a $2,000 stipend.
