DigiPo is spearheaded by ADP's inaugural Civic Fellow Mike Caulfield of Washington State University Vancouver. Mike serves as Washington State University Vancouver’s director of blended and networked learning and has a passion for advancing the learning of online communities and ensuring informed civic engagement. This makes him well-suited to lead this new effort and to galvanize the ADP community around advancing student civic literacy in our digital and polarized age.Together, we will work to advance student civic literacy in our digital and too often polarized age.
