Overview: Inspired by Eric Liu’s You Are More Powerful Than You Think and his notion of civic power, this interactive workshop will introduce the concept of community colleges as “Civic Power Plants” generating power in the civic life of their students and campuses.  How can community colleges harness their true public purpose by educating for democracy and sending it out to making a difference in the civic lives of the community that they serve?  This workshop will feature an immersive role-playing exercise, a presentation on model programs from a diversity of community colleges, and a brainstorm/action planning session. ​
