Democracy Institute Consortium
The Michigan Democracy Institute Consortium was formed in 2015 to promote Political and Civic Engagement in democratic and community affairs. American Democracy’s success requires informed engaged citizens to participate regularly in democratic and community affairs as a means of promoting citizen concerns and values to representatives.
The Consortium is an outgrowth of years of collaborations between partners representing numerous higher education institutions and voluntary associations in Michigan. The success of the consortium is based on the numerous individuals who see the goals of democratic education and engagement as something essential to American life.

Potential new partners should focus on nonpartisan issue examination, political education and civic engagement as this is the cornerstone of the Michigan Democracy Institute Consortium.
