The CLDE KC supports student affairs professionals as they promote engaged citizenship and student development, encourage democratic participation in their communities, respect and appreciate diversity, and advocate applied learning and social responsibility.
The purpose of the Rising Star for Commitment to Civic Engagement is to recognize an individual for their commitment to civic learning and democratic engagement. As higher education institutions are called upon to renew civic and democratic education, it is the goal of the CLDE KC to identify students and student affairs practitioners at all levels who embody civic engagement and foster a culture of civic learning.
