Civic Renewal Research

Civic renewal—meaning efforts to increase the prevalence, equity, quality, and impact of civic engagement—has long been central to the mission of Tisch College and its predecessor organizations. It may require new policies that encourage engagement, new tools and organizations, social movements, and changes in public opinion and culture.

As part of its commitment to Civic Studies, Tisch College is involved in documenting specific current threats and weaknesses to American civic engagement while exploring potential solutions. Here are specific research studies and resources most relevant to the broad topic of civic renewal in the United States.
