This session explores “work-in-progress:” the formation of a new Multi-State Collaborative on College Civic and Democratic Learning.  Led by SHEEO and NASH, in concert with the CLDE Coalition, the Collaborative promotes robust state-level policies and programs to accelerate civic learning for an engaged democracy among all levels of public higher education systems.  Forum participants are invited to contribute their own thoughts on how state level support can strengthen campus civic learning and help US education revitalize its engagement with democracy and the public good.
