CCAC students Madysen Kelly and Sabrina Ukasik were selected by the Campus Vote Project to serve as Democracy Fellows.
At CCAC, Civic Engagement is not limited to political participation. The college has
a general definition of Civic Engagement:
Any activity that encourages students to become active citizens involved on their campus/center, in their communities, or in the wider world, is considered civic engagement.
The College also has a civic purpose. CCAC's civic purpose is to cultivate a sense of community by:
- Promoting intentional service activities for students, staff, and community
- Bringing awareness of the issues associated with social justice and their impact on democracy
- Helping students develop civil literacy as well as self-awareness as global citizens
- Providing students the necessary resources and civic education for them to better understand that their vote is their voice.
