This webinar focussed on Ask Every Student, a project of the National Resource Consortium on Full Student Voter Participation, seeks to create research-backed processes, systems, and tools to answer that question. They’ve found that the key to reaching full student voter participation comes down to accessing a few minutes of individualized focus from every student on campus to prepare them to confidently navigate the democratic process. Learn more about this project to date and how your campus can partake in this initiative by joining in this conversation.
During this webinar, presenters will discuss their insights about the potential for achieving 100% student voter participation at higher education institutions. Presenters will cover promising practices, tools, and resources.

Many students intend to vote, but don’t end up actually voting, due largely to a range of small “micro-barriers” (confusion, lack of planning, perceived hassle, etc.) that get in the way. These students don’t necessarily need to be convinced or persuaded to vote, but rather helped and “nudged” to ensure that their intent is translated into action.
In this webinar, experts will share about how applying principles of behavioral science can help students overcome these barriers, make voting easier and drive higher political participation. Researchers from the behavioral sciences firm, ideas42, will discuss their report, Graduating Students into Voters. Scott Young of BVA Nudge Unit will share ways in which college administrators, faculty and students can “nudge” voter registration and turnout strategies on campus. They will be joined by Purvi Patel, Director of Civic Engagement at the University of Chicago, who will share how UChiVotes is integrating these concepts into their campus efforts.

The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge empowers colleges and universities to achieve excellence in student democratic engagement by providing structure, support, and recognition. Since the Challenge’s inception in 2016, over 600 colleges and universities have become “ALL IN” making a commitment to help students form the habits of democratically active and informed individuals, make civic participation a core value on their campus, and cultivate generations of engaged community members who are essential to a healthy democracy.
This webinar explores findings from a recent survey of participating colleges and universities to (1) understand what campuses are doing to increase student civic learning, political engagement, and voter participation; (2) highlight institutional impact; and (3) unpack the perceived correlation between participating in the ALL IN Challenge and increased student voter participation. Join researchers Tait Kellogg and Wendy Erisman from Higher Ed Insight as they share survey findings.
