Tufts University: Election Imperatives 2020

Posted by Tufts University Institute for Democracy and Higher Education on August 11, 2020

Very excited to share with you Tufts University Institute for Democracy and Higher Education’s (IDHE) latest — a companion report to last year’s Election Imperatives v2.0Election Imperatives (EI) 2020!

We’ve had so many conversations this year about the pandemic, racial injustice, the approaching election, revisiting our 10 EI recommendations, and considerations and pivots institutions can and should make, that we felt it was necessary to put out this report. In it, we offer a letter for the context of 2020 as we see it in higher education, an equity checklist for ALL who work in political engagement in higher ed, and recommendations/considerations across 3 broad-scope areas: Senior administrators, faculty/academic affairs, and student-centered practitioners/coalitions and organizations. We hope that folks will read the whole thing, understand the holistic movement, and zero in on the recommendations that align with practice in their own day-to-day work.

Our hope is that you’ll help us get the word out to your institutions, networks, and digital audiences! Our goal with this, as with all of our resources, is that it is widely read, understood, and utilized!

You can access EI 2020 (along with last year’s full EI v2.0) at: https://idhe.tufts.edu/electionimperatives

We also have a twitter thread that gives a quick overview of the report (makes for easy sharing!): https://twitter.com/TuftsIDHE/status/1290305641748160513
