Sarah is interested in how we design and build physical, social, and cultural environments—on the scale of a classroom, an organization, or a community—that promote civic engagement. She is particularly interested in envisioning the future of civics education in K-12 public schools and the impact a transformation in civic learning could have on promoting a more diverse, more inclusive, and more just democracy.
