The American Democracy Project (ADP) is a multi-campus initiative focused on higher education's role in preparing the next generation of information, engaged citizens for our democracy. The project began in 2003 as an initiative of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), in partnership with the New York Times.
The goal of the American Democracy Project is to produce graduates who are committed to being active, involved citizens in their communities.
