ADP’s work is a combination of national multi-campus initiatives managed by its national office at AASCU in Washington, D.C., and uniquely local activities developed and managed by individual member campuses. ADP’s national office collaborates with ADP institutions and partners to design campus-centered activities and materials for the larger network’s use in promoting civic learning and democratic engagement. Since its founding in 2003, ADP has launched programs and initiatives that are collaboratively developed and piloted by a working group of cross-campus faculty and staff and then scaled to the full network of ADP campuses. Current programs and initiatives include:
Constructive Dialogue: Fostering Trust, Curiosity, and
Deeper Learning in the Classroom: Designed in partnership with OpenMind, this initiative will explore
how faculty can foster civil discourse and deliberative dialogue within their
classrooms and throughout their campuses.
