About the Civic Engagement Collective

The Civic Engagement Collective is a group of students, faculty and staff that promotes civic engagement to our university community. We want to insure members of the university community know how register to vote, where to vote and are fully informed about the candidates and issues with the goal to create a vibrant, engaging and respectful political climate during the election cycle. We also focus on the importance of civic engagement beyond elections and work to promote opportunities for engagement, discussion and learning.
