Next Conversation - September 15, 2022
Promoting Civil Campus Discourse and Student Voting
September 15, 2022 | 4:00PM - 5:00PM ET
As we prepare for the upcoming fall semester, we return knowing that our students, and campus community as a whole, experienced another summer of societal issues and challenges. While we hope that this fall takes us back to the fall of 2019 in regards to student and campus engagement, we are preparing for student discourse of societal issues and pivotal, and likely contentious, November midterm elections. We invite you to our kickoff 2022-2023 VPSA and AVP Colleague Conversation, “Promoting Civil Campus Discourse and Student Voting” as we discuss our ideas and successes in promoting constructive campus dialogue and strategies to motivate student engagement in the fall elections. We will be joined by Lane Busby McLelland, the director of the Crossroads Civic Engagement Center in the Division of Community Affairs at The University of Alabama, and Darryl Holloman, vice president for student affairs at Spelman College.
