The American Democracy Project recognizes and rewards leadership in civic engagement on AASCU member campuses via four annual awards. Three of these awards—the Barbara Burch Award, the William M. Plater Award and the John Saltmarsh Award—are given to individuals who are working to advance civic learning and engagement on AASCU campuses. The fourth award, the Civic Learning and Community Engagement Award, is a campus-level honor that is part of AASCU's Excellence and Innovation Awards program.
Nomination materials for the American Democracy Project awards are due annually to
firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of March. Awardees for 2017 will be announced on June 8, 2017 at the ADP Organizing Meeting at the
2017 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Meeting in Baltimore, Md.
Starting in 2017, as part of its Excellence and Innovation Awards program, AASCU will recognize two campuses annually with the Civic Learning and Community Engagement Award. The application deadline for this year's Civic Learning and Community Engagement Award is April 21, 2017.
