In March at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Ala., students came together from all over the country in an attempt to “connect the dots” for a more active and better informed civic culture. The conference, designed to encourage public dialogue, deliberation and problem solving, was sponsored by the David Mathews Center for Civic Life’s Community-Based Internship Program in New College at the University. Many of the organizers of the conference came from the Kettering Foundation in Ohio, the Democracy Imperative in New Hampshire, and Everyday Democracy in Connecticut.
