American Democracy Project
The American Democracy project at the University of West Georgia cultivates civic engagements for students, faculty and staff that constitute the University community. It has three main goals: to promote community/campus involvement; to facilitate student participation and interest in government; and to create greater awareness of issues impacting the community.
The UWG American Democracy Project engages in such activities as: the voter registration drive; the campus distinguished speaker program; student voluntary participation in campus/community programs; the student newspaper readership program, and many other worthwhile activities. Each activity is funded autonomously and serves the common purpose of promoting greater student participation in the American democratic system.
The American Democracy Project (ADP) webpage provides links to external sources of information such as the Gallup Organization and New York Times. The ADP encourages students to speak out on issues that are important to you and participate in campus-sponsored polls. The Murphy Center for Public Service collaborates with the UWG Georgia Political Heritage Program, the UWG Center for Public History, and the UWG EXCEL Center in sponsoring events related to the American Democracy Projects.
