Kutztown University Recognized as a 2022 ALL IN Most Engaged Campuses for College Student Voting
KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Kutztown University has been recognized by the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge as a 2022 ALL IN Most Engaged Campuses for College Student Voting. ALL IN recognizes colleges and universities for making efforts to increase student voter participation.
KU joins a group of 394 colleges and universities recognized by ALL IN for completing the following four actions: participating in the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, sharing 2020 NSLVE Reports with campus voting data with ALL IN, developing and submitting a 2022 democratic engagement action with ALL IN and has a current signatory to ALL IN’s Higher Education Presidents’ Commitment to Full Student Voter Participation.
The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge is a national nonpartisan initiative of Civic Nation, a 501(c)(3) organization. The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge strives to change civic culture and institutionalize democratic engagement activities and programs on college campuses, making voter participation a defining feature of campus life.
ALL IN, in collaboration with over 960 higher education institutions, seeks to make participation in local, state and federal elections a social norm; substantially increase the number of college students who are democratically engaged on an ongoing basis, during and between elections, and not just at the polls, and; make educating for democratic engagement on college campuses an accepted and expected part of the culture and curriculum so that students graduate with the knowledge, skills, behaviors, and values needed to be an informed and active citizen.
The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge empowers colleges and universities to achieve excellence in nonpartisan student democratic engagement. Campuses that join the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge complete a set of action items, with the support of ALL IN Challenge staff, to institutionalize nonpartisan civic learning, political engagement, and voter participation on their campus. The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge currently engages more than nine million students from more than 950 institutions in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
