About Citizen University

What We Envision

Citizen University envisions a great civic revival across our nation — our dream is a country in which Americans are steeped in a sense of civic character, educated in the tools of civic power, and are problem-solving contributors in self-governing communities.

Building a Stronger Culture of Citizenship


Citizen University creates programs on civic power and civic character that are spreading across the country. We’re activating civic catalysts nationwide— spanning across age, race, region, and ideology — to bring the beliefs and practices of powerful, responsible citizenship to their communities.
