Community, Collaboration, Communication, and Change:
The Power of Civil Engagement by Older Adults
Civic engagement refers to the ways in which citizens participate in the life of a community in order to improve conditions for others or to help shape the community’s future. In the past few years, a new movement has emerged to promote greater civic engagement by older adults. This study group for those 50 and over will study how civic engagement is being practiced by older adults and will invite participants to share possible opportunities for civic engagement in their own communities. Instructor Tom Murray has a Ph.D. in Communications from UM, is Emeritus Professor of Communication at EMU, and has led OLLI study groups. This group will meet on Tuesdays from 1-2:30 pm from October 15 through November 5.
