Argumentation and Civic Engagment - A survey

Community and/or civic engagement has become a popular element in many communication programs around the country.   It takes many different forms, ranging from activities related to political campaigns, social activism and service learning to name a few.
We are collecting data regarding civic engagement activities that are incorporated into college/university Argumentation and/or Debate classes.   If you currently teach (or have recently taught) an undergraduate course in Argumentation and/or Debate class, we invite you to take this short survey.   The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete.


In the context of this survey, civic engagement activities are those which prepare students to engage in meaningful actions as citizens in a democracy.   This survey focuses on the political participation aspect rather than service-learning as community engagement.
