MDNC Civics Initiative

Welcome to the MDNC Civics Initiative!

In March 2017, the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina launched its Civics Initiative as part of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts' nationwide civics outreach program for middle and high school students.  As part of this initiative, we offer programs on the federal judiciary and the Constitution designed to enrich the students' civics curriculum.  We invite your students to the L. Richardson Preyer Federal Building and Courthouse in Greensboro and the Hiram H. Ward Federal Building and Courthouse in Winston-Salem to participate in one of our programs.  When the court's schedule permits, we are also able to visit high schools.

The programs designed by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts are aligned with national standards and law-related education best practices.  Visit the U.S. Courts Educational Resources for more about Educational Outreach.  Visit the Public Schools of North Carolina for North Carolina Essential Standards for American History: The Founding Principles, Civics and Economics and Eighth Grade Social Studies.

Judge William L. Osteen, Jr. and Laura Dildine, law clerk to Judge N. Carlton Tilley, Jr., are managing this program in the Middle District of North Carolina.  Please contact Laura Dildine, for more information about the Middle District’s civics initiative and to schedule a courthouse or school visit.
