Purpose of the Political Engagement Project

Ferris State University is one of eight institutions in the United States selected to participate in Phase II of the Political Engagement Project sponsored jointly by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and The New York Times. The initiative of the Project aims at the development of both pedagogy and research that is focused upon increasing political awareness and involvement among undergraduate students. Phase I of the Political Engagement Project sought to enhance student political engagement through individual courses. Phase II seeks to achieve that goal on a campus-wide basis.
