The Wesleyan Engage 2020 (E2020) initiative is a comprehensive university effort to support student learning via civic engagement and liberal arts education. E2020 is open to and encourages participation regardless of political affiliations or stances on specific issues.

Wesleyan University has a long history of supporting student engagement in the public sphere. Wesleyan’s Civic Action Plan sets goals for building civic preparedness among students, faculty, and staff and for enhancing the University’s role in public life.

This moment represents a unique opportunity for civic participation and liberal learning through engagement with the public sphere. With the launch of the E2020 Initiative we will provide pathways for student skill and leadership development via direct participation in civic life.
