Levine Receives Established Leader Award

On September 16, at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association (APSA) in Montréal, Canada, Peter Levine was awarded the Established Leader Award by the Civic Engagement section of APSA, in recognition of his “outstanding and sustained achievement” in civic engagement and leadership in teaching, research, scholarship, and service. Levine has been a member of the Kettering Foundation’s board of directors since 2008.

Levine is associate dean of academic affairs and Lincoln Filene Professor of Citizenship & Public Affairs in Tufts University’s Jonathan Tisch College of Civic Life. He was a co-organizer and coauthor of The Civic Mission of Schools (2003) and The College, Career & Citizenship (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards (2013), both of which are sources of the “six promising practices” and the notion of “taking informed action” that are widely found in state and local policies and curricula. He is also a coauthor of The Educating for American Democracy Roadmap (2021), an inquiry-based content framework for excellence in history and civics for all learners.

He is the author of We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: The Promise of Civic Renewal in America (Oxford University Press, 2013) and What Should We Do? A Theory of Civic Life (Oxford University Press, 2022).
