Welcome to the Center for Service and Learning's CLDE Perspectives blog. We are glad you are here!
This blog is a space to explore ideas, showcase promising practices, and raise thought-provoking questions about the role education should play in democratic life, which we refer to as civic learning and democratic engagement (CLDE). Where do we learn the habits of mind, heart, and interaction that enable full participation, collective self-determination, and promote justice? Where are we falling short? What are the tensions that lie inside the work of CLDE, and where are the untapped opportunities at IUPUI and beyond? CLDE Perspectives cultivates an online space for reflective writing, creative expression, idea sharing, and scholarly dialogue spanning a range of campus and broader community perspectives.
We invite you to join us in the conversation!
