The Civic and Moral Education Initiative

About Us

The Civic and Moral Education Initiative

The HGSE Civic and Moral Education Initiative (CMEI) was launched in 2008 in order to foster a visible and thriving intellectual community around the themes of civic and moral education among students and faculty at HGSE; support doctoral student and faculty research; and enhance Harvard's contribution to a lively and vibrant area of contemporary international research, policy, and practice. It is collaboratively led by an interested group of HGSE faculty with the support of Dean Kathleen McCartney.

The work of CMEI includes a series of colloquia, featuring exciting new research and practice in the field of civic education, and a series of presentations from advanced HGSE doctoral students on their related research. We also have a student-group that puts on its own events, including a film series. On our Ning network, which connects practitioners and scholars across the country, features a blog, forums, and lots of great information.
