Civic Action Plans are blueprints for the intentional alignment of an institution’s practices with its values. Through deeply strategic and collaborative work, Civic Action Planning helps colleges and universities to envision an integrated approach to teaching, scholarship, and institutional policies that centers equity and the public purposes of higher education.
