Civic Action

Bard’s engagement extends beyond the Hudson Valley to people and communities around the world.

The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) strives to inspire students to take action, develop a sense of agency, and encourage creative application of language, arts, and sciences in public life. Students have the opportunity to become involved in Bard’s vast network, where they make lasting connections and become active global citizens.

Civic action at Bard includes student-led initiatives, volunteer opportunities, electoral politics, participation in social movements, public education, work with government service and NGO’s, and participation in institutional campus-community partnerships.
