Project Pericles is a vibrant consortium of 30 colleges and universities that promotes civic engagement within higher education. Building on the innovative vision of Eugene M. Lang, Project Pericles works in the classroom, on the campus, and in the community. Project Pericles is at the forefront of civic engagement and social responsibility in areas including faculty and course development, curricular coherence, and research into best practices. We empower college students by giving them the tools they need to engage effectively in the democratic process and the lives of their communities.
REAFFIRMING OUR COMMITMENT TO DEMOCRACY
As we grapple with the insurrection at the Capitol, Project Pericles remains committed to supporting the essential civic engagement and advocacy work of our students, staff, faculty, provosts, and presidents. Our mission of graduating students to be engaged and socially responsible civic leaders continues to be critical to ensuring the health of our democracy and society. Full statement here.
