Established in 1995 by the Political Science faculty, Democracy House rests on the belief that structured programs are needed to develop good citizens, just as similar programs are needed to develop competent teachers, nurses, engineers, and other workers. We aim to develop the civic confidence and competence of students by creating opportunities for them to work on community problems during their undergraduate years.
Democracy House is a part of the Department of History and Social Sciences, within the Division of Arts and Sciences. The Center resides in Room 003 of Raritan Hall. For additional information, please contact us at DemocracyHouse@Middlesexcc.edu or 732-548-6000 ext. 3262.
