Welcome to the Center for Civics Education at Concordia University Irvine. The Center’s mission is to train and develop citizens and leaders to effectively engage in public policy decision-making through seminars, workshops, dialogues, debates, internship programs and collaboration with business, civic, philanthropic, government, political, ethnic and religious organizations and institutions.
The Center focuses specifically on developing wise, honorable and cultivated citizens and servant leaders for active participation in the public arena based on principles of civility, individual liberty and responsibility, the common good and representative government.
