Civic Engagement

Volunteers building a foundationEngaged citizens do more than vote. They act within and outside political systems to improve communities. Acting within the political system involves casting votes, working on a campaign or running for elected office. Civic action outside of the political system could mean volunteering at a school, nonprofit or community agency. Civically engaged residents work to make a difference in their neighborhoods, their cities or townships, their state, their nation and the world. Through its public policy education and leadership trainings, MSU Extension informs residents about public policy issues and processes, develop leadership capacity in communities and strengthen community capacity to solve complex problems.
