Higher Education Exchange 2010

The Higher Education Exchange is an annual journal from the Kettering Foundation that serves as a forum for new ideas and dialogue between scholars and the larger public. Essays explore ways that students, administrators, and faculty can initiate and sustain an ongoing conversation about the public life they share.

The 2010 edition focuses on “centers for public life.”  Below is an excerpt from the introduction…

As noted in previous issues of the Exchange, one of Kettering’s most surprising discoveries has been the emergence of campus centers that are bringing a distinctive concept of democracy to the civic engagement movement in higher education. Because their names vary, we are now using “centers for public life” as a common label. What makes these centers distinctive is the way they understand the public or citizenry and the role it plays in democracy. They treat citizens as active producers of public goods and not just political consumers, voters, and taxpayers. While we have published articles about these centers in earlier issues, we are now able to report in more depth on what we have learned from a year-long conversation with the centers.

– David Mathews, President of the Kettering Foundation
