Voter Friendly Campus 2018 Year End Report

JMU’s institutional commitment and choice to prioritize and invest in civic learning and democratic engagement is paying off. At the heart of our work is building inclusive coalitions and collaborative partnerships to embed civic learning and democratic engagement across campus through curricular and co-curricular programming. A shared mission of EDUCATING and engaging voters, and the collaborative work to achieve JMU's vision certainly contributed to increased turnout rates in the 2018 election. Perhaps more importantly, JMU’s voter education and engagement work has also built momentum for our year-round civic learning and democratic engagement efforts.
