Civic Agency Project

The Civic Agency Project (CAP) is an undergraduate think tank that focuses on problems of civic engagement and democratic leadership.  CAP is designed to bridge the gap between academic learning and civic engagement.  The project educates students in multi-disciplinary approaches to democratic engagement that are centered in the liberal arts, while emphasizing the leadership virtues of compassion, intellectual openness, self-awareness, public-mindedness, and personal integrity.  It combines both experiential and curricular opportunities designed to facilitate the creation of innovative solutions to the problems of contemporary democratic life.  Finally, it offers students opportunities to connect with civically engaged scholars, expert mentors, and a strong, supportive community of their peers.
