About Me: Martin Carcasson earned his Ph.D. in Communication from Texas A&M; University and founded the Colorado State University Center for Public Deliberation (CPD) in 2006.

My Work
Organization Name: Center for Public Deliberation at Colorado State University
Title / Position: Associate Professor and Director
Description: The Center for Public Deliberation (CPD) is dedicated to enhancing local democracy through improved public communication and community problem-solving. The CPD was founded by assistant professor Martin Carcasson in August of 2006 within the Speech Communication Department at Colorado State University, and serves as an affiliate of the National Issues Forum (NIF) network. CSU undergraduates and local citizens are trained as impartial facilitators, and work with the local governments, media, the school district, and citizen organizations on various deliberative projects. Deliberation requires safe places for citizens to come together, good and fair information to help structure the conversation, and skilled facilitators to guide the deliberative process. The CPD is dedicated to providing these three key ingredients to Northern Colorado.
Other Organizations: I am also a part of the Deliberative Democracy Consortium, the University Network for Collaborative Governance, and the Democracy Imperative.
Where to Find My Work: Public Agenda recently published my essay entitled, “Beginning with the End in Mind: A Call for Goal-Driven Deliberative Practice,” which is available online through www.publicagenda.org/cape.
