Welcome to the
Effective Citizenship department’s
Political Content Homepage!
The Effective Citizenship
department is committed to assisting in increasing awareness of
the social, cultural, and historical factors that shape today’s
problems. These pages have been created in order to provide convenient
access to a variety of political resources available throughout
the internet. They include a variety of sources such as government
agencies, organizations committed to keeping the public abreast
of current issues, and nonprofit organizations.
citizenship involves awareness of self and our place in the world,
information gathering about problems and issues involving the various
communities of which we are a part, judgment about the nature of
these issues and ways to resolve them, and leadership and community
involvement to bring together the people and resources necessary
to address these issues.
