The Center for Democratic Deliberation supports outreach and community-based initiatives designed to foster more robust democratic deliberation. It is particularly interested in working with public or private organizations committed to improving the civics and communication curriculum in K-12 schools, staging public forums on important political or social issues, or promoting more active and informed civic engagement.
CDD Outreach initiatives include:
- Partnership with the National Constitution Center, collaboration and contracts with the NCC in Philadelphia
- State College Public Issues Forum, a "town-gown" collaboration
- Flash Forums, designed to engage Penn State and the surrounding community in spirited debate over current events
