Civic Engagement and Social Media

The paper/project builds upon learning acquired from the weekly reading and classroom discussions that took place throughout the course. Its focus should be on an actual example of civic engagement. This could mean an analysis of a local issue and the role of the private citizen in the advocacy of that issue, or it might mean analyzing the efforts of a local government agency that seeks community input into a program, project, or policy. It could also reflect the students experience in a civic engagement process as an advocate, or as an administrator/staff member where the student was required to seek policy guidance rom the public. The paper should be a succinct executive summary analysis of the chosen engagement process.
