National Center for Science and Civic Engagement
The mission of the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement is to inspire, support, and disseminate campus-based science education reform strategies that strengthen learning and build civic accountability among students in colleges and universities. The Center will serve as a national resource for the improvement of undergraduate science education and will provide a platform enabling faculty and administrators to broaden the impact of their innovations and reforms beyond their campuses.
The National Center for Science and Civic Engagement was established in affiliation with Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in 2004. The Center will develop and house activities and projects that encourage and strengthen campus-based efforts to reform undergraduate science education, enhance student learning, engage students with pressing civic questions, and address important issues of our common health.
