Occidental College is a member of Project Pericles, a national organization that encourages and facilitates commitments by colleges and universities to include social responsibility and participatory citizenship as essential elements of their educational programs.
Founded in 2001 by philanthropist Eugene M. Lang, Project Pericles works directly with its member institutions as they individually and collaboratively develop model civic engagement programs in their classrooms, on their campuses, and in their communities.
This Spring, Occidental will host D4D On The Road, an initiative that brings advocacy experts to Periclean campuses to deliver workshops designed to empower and prepare students, faculty, and community members to work within our democratic processes to improve the condition of society.
