Public Statement Examples

By signing on to the ALL IN Higher Education Presidents’ Commitment to Full Student Voter Participation, college and university leaders are asked to make visible and public their commitment to nonpartisan electoral engagement on their campus. In an effort to share such statements, the ALL IN team has compiled a variety of examples.
