Abstract


Civic engagement programs have become prevalent in higher education in many regions of the world. Interest in engagement has increased at a time when Caribbean countries are strengthening the regional integration movement in response to the demands of globalization.

The civic engagement agenda is applicable to higher education institutions elsewhere.
