The American Democracy Project recognizes and rewards leadership in civic engagement on AASCU member campuses through 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.
The extraordinary circumstances of the past month led to a difficult decision. We will not be presenting the annual ADP awards this year. Please consider your colleagues for the awards for CLDE21, and we look forward to celebrating in person with the 2021 winners in Boston!
Starting in 2017, as part of its Excellence and Innovation Awards program, AASCU has recognized one or two campuses annually with the Civic Learning and Community Engagement Award.
