Civic Engagement at Tulane

Civic Engagement involves “working to make a difference in the civic life of one’s community and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.” Civic Studies is an emerging interdisciplinary field that studies civic life and helps citizens improve it. It includes scholarship that combines ethics, knowledge, and strategies to guide citizens in shaping their communities.

Stay tuned in as Tulane Students, Faculty, Staff and Community continue to build coalitions for equity for all through civic participation.
