The Spirit of Democracy Award is given in recognition of exemplary leadership from staff (non-faculty, non-senior administrator) in advancing the civic learning and engagement of undergraduate students and the work of AASCU’s American Democracy Project on campus and/or nationally. The
Spirit of Democracy Award is presented annually at CLDE to a staff member who has been affiliated for more than five years on an AASCU campus and who has demonstrated leadership in advancing the civic learning and engagement of undergraduates.
The award recipient will receive a commemorative to acknowledge the national recognition.
