Oklahoma 2012 Civic Health Index Released

Together with our partners at the University of Central Oklahoma, NCoC released the 2012 Oklahoma Civic Health Index at the Oklahoma State Capitol on December 4. Secretary of State Glenn Coffee accepted the report on behalf of the state.

The report finds that the state thrives in areas such as volunteerism and families sharing meals, but has room for growth in other areas including voting and political participation. The report focuses on the critical importance of civic skills and voter education, and the research team now plans to use an infographic on the findings as an educational tool for schools and libraries across the state.

The Oklahoma Civic Health Index is produced in partnership with the University of Central Oklahoma, Oklahoma Campus Compact, the Kerr Foundation, Inc., and the Walton Family Foundation.
