our mission


© Copyright 2016

The New Hampshire Institute for Civics Education has been established to dramatically improve civics education in New Hampshire's schools. NHICE has set an ambitious goal of making the state first in the nation in citizenship preparation.

"Civics education must become a fundamental priority of our schools, and it must involve more than helping students gain an understanding of a substantial body of civic knowledge," says the organization's planning document. "To ensure active participation in our democracy, educators must help students engage with their communities and learn a variety of skills associated with political and community life. They also must help students cultivate attitudes and beliefs that might best be described as 'civic virtues.' "

NHICE plans a number of workshops and other events devoted to fulfilling its mission including educator workshops and free public events.
