Deondra Rose writes on “The Scholar as a Citizen”

Hart Leadership Program’s own Deondra Rose,  Assistant Professor at the Sanford School of Public Policy with a secondary appointment in the Department of Political Science, was published this week by the Duke Office of Civic Engagement. She writes about the organizations she invests in as a citizen and how her scholarship informs her participation in civic life.

She writes, “I believe that as a political scientist who is committed to the cultivation of informed and empowered citizens, modeling active civic engagement is part-and-parcel of my work as a professor.  As the United States grapples with challenges like declining social cohesion and lackluster political participation—particularly among young citizens—civically engaged scholars can offer powerful role models for students.”
