July 11, 2018 | New Issue of AAC&U's Diversity & Democracy Available: Democracy's Graduates: Reimagining Alumnihood

"These contributors imagine a powerful, inclusive vision of alumnihood--one in which colleges and universities enlist alumni as allies in improving civic education and in advancing the institutions' public missions in the places where alumni are situated as professionals and community members." 

Produced in partnership with the Kettering Foundation, this issue of Diversity & Democracy examines alumni-driven civic engagement, both at the institutional level and in the community.
