Civic Engagement Research Group (CERG)
At the Civic Engagement Research Group (CERG), at the University of California, Riverside and Mills College, we conduct quantitative and qualitative research focused on understanding:
The nature of youth civic engagement.
The impact of civic learning opportunities and digital media participation on young people's civic capacities and commitments.
The quantity, quality, and equality of civic opportunities and outcomes in public schools and other contexts.
The goal is to monitor trends, frame priorities, and develop an evidence base regarding effective civic education practices and policies.
