Webinar: Campus-Wide Civic and Voter Engagement: Opportunities & Resources

July 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

From student life to residential hall activities, recreation and facilities staff to the sustainability office, each staff person, faculty and student on campus can encourage voter registration and participation. Data from multiple national elections have shown that the votes coming from higher education students and the larger campus community are often crucial to election results, and have had a tendency to increase since 2014, breaking midterm turnout records in 2018 and 2022. Without these votes, the results would have been different at both the state and national levels. It is important to share the importance of voting and make it easy for newer voters to understand how to register and get their vote submitted.

The Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC) has compiled a great list of resources to help make it easy for every campus to host voter registration and Get Out the Vote activities. This webinar will share great examples from a variety of campuses and will discuss how all departments on campus can help with these efforts. The webinar will also be interactive, so if you have concerns, challenges, or success stories, bring them to share. HEASC members include associations for facilities (APPA), housing officers (ACUHO-I), sustainability staff and faculty champions (AASHE), student life staff (ACPA), etc. You can all make a difference and this is how to do that in your role/department!
