According to the long-running annual study by UCLA’s Higher Education Research Institute published in 2016, college students are more likely than ever to be politically active and civically engaged. The study found one in 10 students expected to be involved in some kind of protest during their college career - the highest the survey had recorded since it began in 1967. The question we need to ask is: How are we supporting students who see activism as central to the college experience? Join in conversation with emerging and seasoned student activists and listen to stories of challenges and success. By amplifying student voices, let’s examine the relationship between the student’s perceived campus environment and their own social and political activity.
