Tools for the 2020 Election Season on (Physical or Virtual) Campus
As the final days of the 2020 U.S. Election season approach, IDHE has a new short report to offer help. In it (below left), you'll find a checklist with resources for action across many of the issues facing students, administrators, and faculty. We also have a new blog post, "Last Call for Democracy: A Message for College and University Leaders," up on ACE's Higher Education Today outlet, which you can find below (click the thumbnail to the right):
In IDHE's Election Imperatives 2020, we call on college and university presidents in the United States to take a stand for student voting rights. This month, IDHE is partnering with experts from the Andrew Goodman Foundation and Campus Vote Project to issue a new memorandum to higher education leaders that outlines specific recommendations for action. You can read the memo on college student voting rights in full, along with Election Imperatives 2020, by clicking the thumbnails below:
If you have stories to share, compelling photos of your student political engagement efforts, or creative new ways of building awareness at your college or university, reach out to us. We'd love to hear from you.
