The Democracy Imperative

The Democracy Imperative (TDI) at the University of New Hampshire links practitioners interested in establishing deliberative democracy in their home institutions and communities. Membership in the network is free, and TDI provides several resources for practitioners on its Web site, including a framing paper that delineates the relationship between democratic practice and diversity education. To access these resources, visit www.unh.edu/academic-affairs/democracy (Diversity & Democracy advisory board member Nancy Thomas is TDI’s acting director.)

Community Standards for Service Learning

Based on interviews of community partners conducted in the spring of 2006 by staff and students at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, this document outlines best practices for faculty, students, and community partners entering into a service-learning relationship. The standards provide specific recommendations related to communication, infrastructure, and diversity, and include links to additional Web resources that support those recommendations. To read the standards, visit http://comm-org.wisc.edu/sl/cs4slbrochure.htm

A Practical Guide for Integrating Civic Responsibility Into the Curriculum

This monograph, published by the American Association of Community Colleges, provides useful advice to practitioners seeking to prepare students to embrace their roles as citizens. Although written with the specific challenges facing community colleges in mind, the volume’s tips are widely applicable to anyone developing a service-learning curriculum. The authors explore best practices to encourage engaged civic learning for all students, including the growing population of recent immigrants.
