Campus Electoral Engagement Self-Assessment

Posted by Campus Election Engagement Project on February 21, 2016

Our self-assessment will help you evaluate past engagement efforts on your campus and identify areas of focus.

We developed this Campus Electoral Engagement Self-Assessment to help campuses identify which non-partisan, high-impact electoral engagement practices currently take place at their institution, and which could be added.

The tool is meant to serve as a starting point for faculty, staff, and students to develop a strategic plan to enhance student engagement in elections at the local, state, and federal levels.

The self-assessment looks at four aspects of electoral engagement on college campuses: campus commitment, student voter registration, student education on candidates and electoral issues, and mobilizing students to vote. Each of these four categories includes high-impact electoral engagement practices that many campuses utilize; however, the goal of this self-assessment is not to prescribe a one size fits all approach for every campus. Rather, in recognizing that each campus is unique and has its own culture, it is our hope that campuses will assess their current efforts and then explore which efforts can be improved and which additional engagement approaches can be implemented.
