The election is over, and by all accounts, young people turned out to vote at higher rates—at least 1% higher—than in 2008. We’re energized by our member campuses’ dedication, from registering and mobilizing voters to hosting mock debates and watch parties. Looking ahead to the next election, the American Democracy Project is already discussing how we’re going to support student political knowledge and engagement.

So we’re particularly excited to share with campuses a new project that offers colleges and universities the chance to measure student registration and voting rates and to study the effectiveness of educational programs designed to increase civic learning and engagement in democracy. ADP member campuses are invited to participate in  NSLVE—the National Study on Learning, Voting, and Engagement—a new research initiative designed by our friends at the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE).
