National Social Media Project
This three-year initiative is a partnership of American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the Center for the Study of Citizenship at Wayne State University. Still in the beginning phases, the participating thirty-four institutions in this initiative will work together to study how emerging technologies, particularly social networks, support and facilitate civic and political engagement. The main goal of the initiative to provide insights into and strategies for engaging undergraduates in the use of social networks and technology tools for civic purposes. Those strategies can then be broadly employed to prepare undergraduates for lives of engagement and participation.
