The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement
The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) offers colleges and universities an opportunity to learn their student registration and voting rates and, for interested campuses, a closer examination of their campus climate for political learning and engagement and correlations between specific student learning experiences and voting. Nearly 600 campuses are currently participating, and your institution is being invited to join the study as well. This opportunity is free, confidential, easy, and protective of your students’ privacy. This is not a survey, and you do not need to compile student lists or records. For more information, contact Ishara Casellas Connors, NSLVE associate director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit http://activecitizen.tufts.edu/research/nslve/.
