About the project, student liaison Rachel Wintz says, "This experience was invaluable. I improved my interview skills, research efficiency, learned how to network and communicate in the university setting, and I saw how a project could evolve with the help of a few people who want to share their passion and help others become engaged citizens."
ENGAGE Social Issues and ADP's eCitizenship Initiative
Social citizens are a new breed of activists changing the world with their ideas, technology, and passion. Are you a Social Citizen?
eCitizenship is a three-year initiative of the American Democracy Project and a partnership of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the Center for the Study of Citizenship at Wayne State University. The main goals of e-Citizenship are to engage students in using social networks and technology tools for civic purposes and to prepare students for lives of engagement and participation.
