At CIRCLE, we’re working on two reports whose contents are embargoed, but both contain a lot of interesting new findings about Americans’ demand for civic participation and their engagement in relatively impressive forms of civic work:
On October 4th in Washington, the National Conference on Citizenship will release a major national poll. It helps to reveal how many and which Americans are currently involved in deliberation and public work.
On November 7th in Washington, CIRCLE will release the results of a major national study based on our interviews with 386 college students on 12 four-year colleges and universities. Like the NCoC study, but in different ways, it probes deliberation and attitudes toward politics and civil society.
