Faculty can play a major role in our work.
The easiest way to build a culture of democratic engagement on campus is to integrate voter education into preexisting programs and curriculums on campus. When professors and faculty pledge to be civically engaged in the effort, they are helping increase the youth voter turnout. At the end of the day, this is a campus effort.
