Center for Democracy and Citizenship at Augsburg College

Conditions are primed for organizing and public work, and citizen-driven change has never been more needed.

To be most effective in this environment, the Center for Democracy and Citizenship is developing a partnership with the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities. Through this network of liberal arts colleges, we will be able to further multiply our work and engage more young people across the Twin Cities in such initiatives as Public Achievement, the Jane Addams School for Democracy, and the Warrior to Citizen Campaign.

As of today, we will be located at Augsburg College in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis. We value our long association with the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs and other units of the University of Minnesota and will retain these strong ties as we further our work.

Building on our past initiatives, our focus going forward will be the democratic purpose of education. We believe that education reform is needed so that all people can and do develop their full talents as contributors to our democracy. Our staff will continue to teach classes, offer training, and coordinate demonstration sites and programs locally, nationally, and internationally in support of this mission.

During our physical transition from the University of Minnesota to Augsburg College, you will be able to find our up-to-date contact information and new blog address at We look forward to announcing a newly designed blog later this summer.

Thank you for your continuing interest in our work and your contributions to the strength of our democracy.
