Civic Engagement @ UNF

The Center for Community-Based Learning promotes the personal development of students and employees through engaged citizenship and democratic participation. The Center provides educational programs and initiatives with students and campus partners to aid these parties in developing skills and knowledge to be active members in their communities. At the most basic level, the Center wants people to know how to participate in democratic processes through accessing information that will help inform and better prepare them to be citizens. The following questions, information, and dates are collected to provide people with a one-stop shop for democratic participation.
