The purpose of the American Democracy Project (ADP) at UNK is to promote both civic and political engagement among students, providing opportunities across campus for individuals to be involved in the democratic community through volunteering, advocacy, voting, and service learning.
The American Democracy Project is a national program gaining momentum on university campuses. The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) sponsors the program, in partnership with The New York Times.
