Ferruolo Appointed to Two-Year Term on Civic Education Committee

Dean Stephen C. Ferruolo has been appointed to a two-year term on the Power of Democracy Steering Committee, which oversees follow-up to the Civic Learning California Summit: Making Democracy Work. Under the honorary leadership of California State Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, the committee works together to improve civic awareness, learning and engagement in California.

“I am excited to be a champion for K-12 civic learning at the statewide level,” Ferruolo said. “As a member of the Civic Learning Partnership in San Diego County, I know that working together we can make civic learning and engagement a priority in all California schools.”

In May 2017, Ferruolo received the 2016-17 Convivio Communitas Award for Leadership, which recognizes and honors Italian-community leaders who have made a substantive impact through academic, business and civic endeavors.
