LAKELAND, Fla. – The American Center for Political Leadership (ACPL) at Southeastern University will be offering an interactive civics presentation on Tuesday, February 22, at 10:30 a.m. in the university’s Buena Vida West Auditorium. 

The program, entitled “Who Are You and Why?” will review research from the ACPL’s recently completed National Survey on Civic Health. The survey, taken by over 5,000 participants throughout the country, is a landmark collection of data that provides guidance to answering questions about how Americans can work together to build a stronger democracy. Some of the questions to be discussed include:

  • Have you ever wondered how life experiences and beliefs shape a person’s views about what it means to “be a good citizen”?
  • How do people come to wildly different conclusions about the role that they should play in public life?  
  • What might be done to bring people together with very different visions for the country?  

You can read more about the ACPL’s research here along with the research brief, “Does College Attendance Build Capacity for Constructive Political Discourse?”

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, email acpl@seu.edu or call 863.667.5051.
