The American Center for Political Leadership (ACPL) at Southeastern University will be offering an interactive civics presentation on Tuesday, February 22, at 10:30 a.m. in the university’s Buena Vida West Auditorium.
The program, entitled “Who Are You and Why?” will review research from the ACPL’s recently completed National Survey on Civic Health. The survey, taken by over 5,000 participants throughout the country, is a landmark collection of data that provides guidance to answering questions about how Americans can work together to build a stronger democracy. Some of the questions to be discussed include:
- Have you ever wondered how life experiences and beliefs shape a person’s views about what it means to “be a good citizen”?
- How do people come to wildly different conclusions about the role that they should play in public life?
- What might be done to bring people together with very different visions for the country?
You can read more about the ACPL’s research here along with the research brief, “Does College Attendance Build Capacity for Constructive Political Discourse?”
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 863.667.5051.
About the ACPL
The American Center for Political Leadership is a bipartisan think tank that was founded at SEU to raise up a new generation of political leaders who understand that the only way to create real lasting change is by engaging when others pull back, by acting with civility when others work through disrespect and by defending the individual freedoms that form the bedrock of our society. The ACPL stands on three pillars: cultivating civic engagement, advancing political civility, and defending individual freedoms, with the goal of reclaiming the traditional American ideal that we can make this nation great by working together, no matter what our differences may be, and giving the next generation the tools they need to make this dream a reality.
