This presentation will describe a collaboration between Purdue Libraries and the Office of Civic Engagement and Leadership Development at Purdue. ILS 495 Citizen’s Academy is a unique one-credit course where members of the community and Purdue students learn to develop their own personal leadership styles while becoming more involved at the local level. This session will cover concepts of civic literacy, citizenship and elements of power. It will cover success stories from the class, as well as examples of activities and conversations. This presentation will describe how the project came about and how similar partnerships can flourish.
