ICPSR has created a new archive of data drawn from the multiple disciplines researching civic education and involvement, funded through a grant from the Spencer Foundation. We are pleased to announce the launch of CivicLEADS – Civic Learning, Engagement, and Action Data Sharing – and its website at www.civicleads.org.
We would like to invite you to visit this new resource for researchers who explore diverse topics including civic and political engagement, curricula and learning, social networks, media literacy, activism, and social movements. We will be adding data and resources regularly, so please be sure to sign up for our mailing list. We will be presenting a webinar this autumn—please be on the look-out for an invitation to the webinar and sign up for the mailing list to ensure you are invited to future webinars and data training opportunities.
We are always searching for high-quality data from research into civic education, involvement, action, and the intersection of the three. If you have conducted a study or know of an existing study which would make an excellent addition to CivicLEADS, please read more about how to share your data and contact David Bleckley to recommend a study.
Thank you for taking a look at CivicLEADS.
Dr. Susan Jekielek, Johanna Bleckman, and David Bleckley
