About Us

Citizen University exists to spread the belief that a strong democracy relies on strong citizens— that we all have the power to make change happen in civic life, and the responsibility to try.

Our mission is to build a culture of powerful, responsible citizenship across the country. We envision a great civic revival across our nation — our dream is a country in which Americans are steeped in a sense of civic character, educated in the tools of civic power, and problem solving contributors in a self-governing community.

In our work, Citizen University designs programs and projects that teach civic power and civic character, the essential components of powerful, responsible citizenship. We then activate and teach civic catalysts to spark the spirit of democratic renewal in their communities by equipping them with the skills and resources to bring these programs back to where they live. We also create and share accessible toolkits and resources that can be utilized by anyone, and we amplify and share success stories of powerful citizenship in action.

Our team approaches this work with joy, purpose, and a deep responsibility to each other and to our community.
