Season 2 Episode 4

Making the commitment to democracy at the community’s college: In this episode we continue our conversation about “nontraditional students” by talking with Verdis Robinson, the first National Director of The Democracy Commitment (TDC). TDC is a non-partisan national organization dedicated to advancing democracy in higher education, and to make democratic skills available to all individuals who desire a voice and a seat at the table of local, state, and national discourse and action. To such end TDC provides a platform for the development and expansion of community college programs, projects, and curricula aimed at engaging students in civic learning and democratic engagement. We discussed what makes community college engagement different and what it is imperative to support it. We also shared new resources that can support your work on campus right away.
