The center is located on the campus of Arcadia University in Glenside, PA and, as the website states, is a “collaborative effort between the National Constitution Center and Arcadia University.” In order to promote civics education, the Rendell Center offers opportunities to develop an engaged citizenship to all those on the Arcadia Campus, the community at large, and all students at all levels of education. The Rendell Center also offers teaching tools for educators, including a literacy-based civics curriculum called “We The Civics Kids,” a program born of the collaboration between Arcadia and the National Constitution Center.
