Bridging Cultures: The Democracy Commitment

The Democracy Commitment (TDC) is a new and rapidly-growing national consortium of community colleges committed to engaging all of their students in robust forms of civic learning and democratic practice. The mission of the partnership is for every graduate of an American community college to have had an education in democracy, whether they aim to transfer to university, achieve an associate degree, or obtain a certificate.

TDC has three goals for its national network: faculty and staff development in civic learning and democratic practice; the expansion of democracy-enhancing curricula; and the creation of a national clearinghouse of program and curricular designs. Within the NEH project and through its larger network, TDC will champion the critical role of the humanities in helping students think through and navigate the complexities of local and global multicultural divides within democratic engagement work on campus and in the community.
