Nearly 60 rising middle school students are attending Baylor’s nationally recognized iEngage Summer Civics Institute July 31 – Aug. 4, with campers on the Baylor campus daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Founded in 2013, Baylor’s iEngage Summer Civics Institute is led by School of Education faculty member Karon LeCompte, Ph.D., associate professor of curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in social studies education, who also co-founded the program.
