Democracy Project

MISSION STATEMENT: The Rollins College Democracy Project, aligned with the College’s mission, prepares students with the knowledge and skills to actively engage in our democratic processes. Through programming and education, this nonpartisan initiative derives its comprehensive goals from A Crucible Moment: College Learning & Democracy's Future, and therefore strives to empower students as the next generation of active citizens by fostering a civic ethos and advancing civic action.

It's been several months since we satisfied our civic duty at polling stations across the nation. While voting is, for many, the only expression of political engagement, that's Democracy Projectsomething Sarah Elbadri '13 and Brock Monroe '14 hope to change on the Rollins campus as they steer the Democracy Project towards ways to stay engaged after the election.  

"Civic engagement starts with, but shouldn't end with, voting," Monroe says. "Voting is important but if you're only involved on Election Day, then you're not actually impacting the decisions being made."
