What do campuses commit to?

By joining the Challenge, campuses commit to:

    • Increase student voting rates, help students form the habits of active and informed citizenship, and make democratic participation a core value on their campus.
    • Convene a campus-wide committee that includes members from academic affairs, student affairs, and the student body, as well as any other relevant stakeholders.
    • Develop and implement an action plan to improve democratic engagement.
    • Participate in the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) in order to measure student voter participation rates.
    • Share their campus’ action plan and NSLVE results with the Challenge in order to be eligible for a recognition seal and/or awards.
