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.
APRIL 20, 2021 STATEMENT
Today, our nation focuses on the Chauvin verdict. This verdict reminds us that the unjust murder of George Floyd is part of a broader struggle for racial equity that has been happening for our entire history and continues.
Project Pericles remains committed to the fight against systemic racism and inequality. And, we will continue to support our Periclean network with programs that equip students with the skills and tools necessary for achieving a true democracy and equal justice for all.
