The mission of the Davenport Institute for Public Engagement and Civic Leadership is to help build stronger communities in California by promoting public participation in local governance. The Davenport
Institute works with local governments, non-profit organizations, and residents to both promote and support and broad-based civic involvement in decisions that affect people where they live and work. We strive to be a champion of public engagement as a 21st century leadership skill for governments and residents to succeed together.
