Civic Engagement - Peter Levine, Director of CIRCLE 03/21/2015

Dr. Peter Levine is one of the nation’s most influential civic engagement activists. His recent book We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: The Promise of Civic Renewal in America provides a broad, clear definition of civic renewal, deliberation, and collaboration. It is a must-have primer for anyone interested in participatory democracy.

Peter Levine, Director of CIRCLE, The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, Tufts University, delivers the keynote address at the Vermont League of Women Voters annual Spring Luncheon. Civic renewal, for Dr. Levine, means addressing both sides of the equation: citizens' disengagement and institutional corruption. He firmly believes Americans are ready to take on a serious and energized role in fulfilling their civic responsibilities.
Dr. Levine is also the Associate Dean for Research and Lincoln Filene Professor of Citizenship & Public Affairs at Tuft University Jonathan Tisch College.
