  • Pioneers Vote: Engaging a Reluctant Audience

    Civic engagement on a college campus depends on the creation of an environment cognizant of the characteristics of its student population and respectful of the diverse opinions of all those in the campus community. In a national political and social environment where the act of engaging civically feels even more “risky”, how do we engage our diverse campus populations in a way that inspires and empowers them to use their voices and join in dialogue? At Texas Woman’s University, the answer has been to create civic engagement initiatives unique to our student population using research, best practices, and cross-campus collaborations.
