Civic Engagement is defined as ‘working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values, and motivation to make the difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes’ (Excerpted from Civic Responsibility and Higher Education, edited by Thomas Ehrlich, published by Oryx Press, 2000, Preface, page vi.) Additionally, the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AACU) illustrates that ‘Civic Engagement encompasses actions wherein individuals participate in activities of personal and public concern that are both individually enriching and socially beneficial to the community."
