  Description This tutorial is aimed at those interested in improving physics education within the context of civic engagement (including service learning). During the tutorial we will describe the national dissemination program SENCER -- which connects science and civic engagement by teaching "through" complex, capacious, and unresolved public issues -- and ways to participate in its activities. We will also discuss ways to include service learning in the physics curriculum using examples from across the country, and engage in group activities that will provide a springboard for making curricular changes that will make civic engagement an integral part of the physics curriculum.
