Allegany College of Maryland was awarded a $1,850 grant for participation in Engage the Election: 2018 through Campus Compact’s newest community college engagement initiative, The Democracy Commitment (TDC). Students can participate in TDC’s National Voter Registration Day Contest, be part of a deliberative dialogue forum on Sept. 21 focused on the Parker Palmer book “Healing the Heart of Democracy” and attend an Election Day party on campus on Nov. 6. Events are open to the public.
“We’re interested in creating great leaders and fostering life-long civic engagement. This grant helps lay that foundation by encouraging involvement and conversation,” explained Service Learning and Civic Engagement Center Director Dr. Diane McMahon.
