Institute for Civic Education

Welcome to the website of the University of Northern Colorado’s Institute for Civic Education. Founded in 2004, the Institute offers content-related professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers in many aspects of American and comparative government, civics, political philosophy and history. Our mission is to advance civic education at all grade levels in the state of Colorado and throughout the country. We believe that teaching young people to be informed and engaged citizens should be a primary goal of their K-12 education.

Please explore our website for information on who we are, what we do, professional development opportunities, and our current activities. If you are interested in in-service workshops, seminars or other learning opportunities, you may contact us at:
