Office of Civic Engagement
What is Civic Engagement?
Thomas Ehrlich may have said it best when he defined civic engagement as "working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes."
Civic Engagement includes many types of community and civic involvement. Whatever way you engage, getting involved and taking your place in our democratic society is essential to making our communities, states and nation work. Choose the path that best fits you, and through open, respectful collaboration we can do great things.
Find an organization, volunteer your skills, work on a political issue, or find an artistic way to raise awareness on an issue that matters to you. No matter which way you get engaged, the OCE is here to help you realize your civic potential!
