Cindy Gibson's CitizenPost
I was delighted to learn today that Cindy Gibson has begun her own blog, CitizenPost. Those of us who know and have worked with Cindy value her as one of the most important and productive members of the civic engagement community. Among many other things, she wrote and edited the report New Times Demand New Scholarship: Research universities and civic engagement, "a conference report [on] a collective initiative of representatives of research universities and Campus Compact to renew the civic mission of higher education."
As she writes in her introductory posting,
I do lots of things... write, research, analyze, synthesize, evaluate, communicate, and educate. And I've worked with all kinds of organizations. Right now, I'm doing all that under the auspices of my own consulting firm, Cynthesis Consulting, which specializes in public policy research and analysis, program development, strategic planning, marketing, and communications for nonprofit and philanthropic organizations across the country.
The public engagement blogosphere will be much enhanced by Cindy Gibson's voice. Welcome!
