|Just a few examples of Binghamton's commitment to civic learning|
On August 19, Binghamton University was named 1 of just 73 universities nationwide selected to be part of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators’ (NASPA) Lead Initiative. The Lead Initiative aims to build “clear and tangible civic learning and democratic engagement activities into student affairs division strategic goals and learning outcomes”. Binghamton was selected on the basis of its pre-existing commitment to incorporating civic engagement within the center of the student experience, as well as its continuing commitment to expanding Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement initiatives on campus in the near future.

“The Center for Civic Engagement is thrilled to be a part of fulfilling the University’s commitment to civic learning and democratic engagement and looks forward to working with NASPA’s Lead Initiative to create a more active and engaged student citizenry,” said Christie Zwahlen, the CCE’s Assistant Director. “It’s particularly exciting to be included in this group of institutions because the CCE is a relatively new department on campus. The fact that we’ve already had some level of impact on the campus culture is something we consider to be a great accomplishment.”
