Erika Imbody at Kansas State University wrote to tell us about an upcoming forum that may be of interest to you all. On November 2nd, The Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy at Kansas State University is co-sponsoring the event: “Civics and Civility Summit: Voices of the Kansas People.” This summit is bringing together political, educational, and community leaders to:

  • Better understand the current state of civic understanding and civility by identifying the civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions of Kansans
  • Build an awareness of civic programs available to schools and focus on civic literacy for 21st century learning
  • Identify civic community needs, solutions for addressing those needs, and build local organizational capacities for public problem solving

Summit speakers include: U.S. Representative Nancy Boyda, Kansas Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh, and National Director for the Campaign to Promote Civic Education Ted McConnell. More information on this event can be found at: www.dce.ksu.edu/conf/civics
