Parents and Families


U of M’s world-class education for your student, includes preparing them with critical knowledge, skills, and opportunities to be leaders in an increasingly complex world. Catalyzing and supporting your student as they build the knowledge, skills, and agency for full participation in civic life must be a fundamental part of that education. 

A curated list of learning resources is available to your student that will help learners understand the complexities of democratic systems, and critically examine important social issues. This list relies heavily on Research Guides prepared by U-M Libraries, as well as resources prepared by other universities and external sources, to help your student learn more about our democracy and the issues you care about. 

The resources are available via the Ginsberg Center website.
