Food Security: The Answer from a Call to Civic Action
The new Bearcat Pantry now demonstrates the answer to the need. To really get an actual running pantry with consistent donations, funds, hours of operation, and a safe location, it took the action and commitment of multiple offices and departments to do so. The Bearcat Pantry has been the most supported, sustained and collaborative community project on Willamette’s campus in the history of the CSL office.
#CLDE18 OPENING PLENARY | CivEd Talks and Our CLDE Theory of Change
The 2018 Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement (CLDE18) meeting organized by the American Democracy Project (ADP), The Democracy Commitment (TDC) and NASPA LEAD Initiative, is continuing the conversation about our collective emergent Theory of Change adapted from elements of the 2012 A Crucible Moment report. We encourage participants to reflect on how together we can build campus cultures and contexts contribute to a more vibrant democracy, advance civic outcomes and pedagogies, and strategically institutionalize our work.

Planning for Positive and Peaceful Campus Demonstrations
The heart of any rally is the cause or issue, and often the cause has had a personal and emotional effect on students. While some demonstration participants intend to raise awareness, educate and advocate for change, others may simply be angry, hurt, or feel they are in an “us vs. them” situation. Students may feel victimized or marginalized by responses to the protest or issue, especially if the responses come from campus staff, faculty or other students. Providing campus/off-campus resources for having difficult conversations and continued advocacy is important for students’ civic engagement, and also providing resources for students’ mental and physical health may provide critically needed support for these students in crisis.
