The American Democracy Project


adp_newlogo_FINALThe American Democracy Project (ADP) is a multi-campus initiative focused on higher education’s role in preparing the next generation of informed, engaged citizens for our democracy. The project began in 2003 as an initiative of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU).  The goal of the American Democracy Project is to produce graduates who are committed to being active, involved citizens in their communities. The 250 participating colleges and universities, as members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, have been described as “Stewards of Place.” As today’s undergraduates complete their studies and return to their communities, universities must prepare the next generation of citizens to become tomorrow’s “Stewards of Place.”

Guidelines for Managing Externally-Initiated Political Events and Visits 

Visits by those seeking elected office often come up quickly and require a flexible but consistent protocol.  At Keene State College, the American Democracy Project (ADP) sought and gained approval from the Provost and the Cabinet in 2011 to become the point of contact and organizing body for political visits.
