Town Hall meetings encourage dialogue
Teaching students how to effect change through democratic engagement Frostburg State University fosters active citizenship and strives to build citizen leaders for the 21st century. As active citizens students educate themselves about, and become involved in, their local, national, or global communities. Through political engagement, community organizing, and inclusivity these active citizen leaders are enabled to combat public concerns at their core and strengthen their greater community.
Town Hall Series
Election Night Coverage
The office of Civic Engagement has partnered with the J. Glenn Beall Jr. Institute for Public Affairs, the Political Science Department, and the Student government Association to host a series of town hall meetings each semester that bring students together for meaningful conversations about their local, state, and national governments. These conversations range in topics from how the economy affects our students and higher education, to issues regarding foreign policy. These programs are focused on educating students on the democratic process and how they can get involved to make a difference.
