Pace University's Presidential Convention 2004: Teaching Political Literacy and Civic Engagement in the Urban University Setting
Keywords:Metropolitan Universities, Civic Engagement, Political Literacy
AbstractThis paper explores how large-scale simulations at urban universities can promote political literacy and civic engagement in their communities. It also suggests that, through these large-scale simulations, educators at urban universities can help to promote political participation among youth and reverse the effects of low voter turnout in that demographic group.
