May 2014: Academy for Civic Engagement

Dr. Alexander was selected to participate in Auburn University's Academy for Civic Engagement (ACE). Civic engagement refers to the ways in which citizens participate in the life of the community in order to improve conditions for others or to help shape the community's future (Adler & Goggin, 2005). She spent time with colleagues from Auburn University and universities in Mexico, collaborating on ways to incorporate civic engagement into their teaching.
