The core goal of the Joint Center is to support Florida’s K-12 civic educators who seek to strengthen civic knowledge, skills and dispositions among their students. The Joint Center also seeks to understand the factors that lead to improved civic learning and engagement and to monitor the condition of Florida’s civic health.

In carrying out its work, the Joint Center is intended to achieve key shared objectives of both the Lou Frey Institute and the Bob Graham Center.
