Engaged Learning Forum - "Civic and Political Engagement and Higher Education"

Thursday, November 7, 2019 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM | Geddes Hall Coffee House

Dr. Nancy Thomas, Tufts University

Dr. Nancy Thomas directs the Institute for Democracy & Higher Education (IDHE) at Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life. IDHE is an applied research center that studies higher education’s role in American democracy and supports college and university student political learning and participation. The Institute's signature initiative, the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) examines student voting rates, patterns, and conditions. Through NSLVE, nearly 1,200 U.S. colleges and universities (including Notre Dame) receive tailored reports containing their students’ aggregate voting rates following each federal election. Dr. Thomas' work and scholarship include college student civic learning and participation in democracy, campus climates for political engagement, deliberative democracy, political equity and inclusion, campus free speech, and academic freedom. She holds a doctorate from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a law degree from Case Western Research University’s School of Law. She is an associate editor at the Journal of Public Deliberation, a senior associate with Everyday Democracy, and a member of the Scholars Strategy Network. Thomas currently serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Public Deliberation and is a senior associate with Everyday Democracy. Space is limited. Registration is required and open to staff, faculty, and graduate students. Please RSVP by November 1, 2019. Grad students RSVP through GradConnect (counts as credit for Certificate in Community Engagement and Public Scholarship - CEPS).

Beginning the day after the Fall 2019 election, Dr. Thomas will spend two days on campus meeting with faculty, graduate students, and others to discuss the intersection of civic/political engagement and higher education. Cosponsors include the Center for Social Concerns, the Department of Political Science, the Constitutional Studies Minor,  the Office of the Provost, Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy, Notre Dame Learning | Kaneb Center, the Division of Student Affairs, and ND Votes.
