UW-Parkside is committed to helping students to become active and responsible citizens at the local, national, and global level.  In Fall 2016, a series of events (lectures, discussions, academic projects, and media presentations) centered on the presidential election took place on campus. 

A minimum of one event was scheduled each week; students and community members engaged in multidisciplinary discussions and interpretations of the American political process, with the objective of developing a deep sense of citizenship. 

UW-Parkside takes part in NSLVE (National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement).  For the 2016 election, analysis was based on the voting records of 9,784,931 million students at 1.023 higher education institutions.  The study found that 48.3% of all students voted in the 2016 presidential election, which significant variations by race gender, field of student, institution type, and more.  This is the second election year that UW-Parkside has participated in the study, in which our university ranked higher in voter turn out than the national average.  Click here to read the report.
