Programs of the Center for Civic Participation increase awareness among and involvement of community college students, faculty, staff, and the public in civic issues, public policy, and advocacy. Deliberative forums on timely community and policy issues, workshops on voting and public-policy processes, and development of instructional methods and resources to infuse civics across the curriculum are used to carry out the center’s mission. The center partners with nonpartisan civic and government agencies to carry out public forums on national and state issues throughout metro Phoenix. Voter education, registration, information, and outreach are also major activities.
