International Democratic Education Institute
The goal of the International Democratic Education Institute is to bring together BGSU faculty, community leaders and other educators from the US and abroad to promote democracy through education in such a way that students are provided the skills and knowledge necessary for them to perform their role as informed, responsible, committed and effective members of their respective democratic and political system.
Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy therefore, is education. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
