Campus Compact is pleased to present a virtual series focused on the 2020 Election. This multi-part series is presented as a program of Campus Compact’s Education for Democracy initiative, preparing students for active and effective participation in public life.

Each session will explore different aspects of how colleges and universities can deepen their commitment to and practice with political learning, civic education, and building a diverse democracy through their teaching and learning, student life, and civic engagement.
