The American Democracy Project (ADP) is a multi-campus initiative that seeks to create an intellectual and experiential understanding of civic engagement for undergraduates enrolled at institutions that are members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU).The goal of the project is to produce graduates who understand and are committed to engaging in meaningful actions as citizens in a democracy. Indiana University
South Bend is one of more than 250 campuses nationwide participating in this national initiative.
The IU South Bend American Democracy Project partners with the non-partisan Political Science Club and with other campus and community organizations to promote civic and political engagement initiatives. The American Democracy Project is strictly non-partisan. We welcome involvement and ideas from community leaders, local political officials, and non-partisan civic organizations.
