April 161:00 PM – 2:00 PMWhat Personality Type Are You: Champion, Advocate, Messenger, or Hesitator?There are so many ways for faculty to engage in the democratic process. Perhaps you work closely with students on voter mobilization efforts (champion). Or you reach out to your colleagues across disciplines to encourage them to talk politics in the classroom (advocate). Or you pass on slide decks, website links, and other resources to encourage others on campus (messenger). Or you may be among many, many other faculty who want to play a role, but aren’t sure where to begin, how to fit it in, or what to say (hesitator). Join us for a session on the many roles faculty can play and to explore what your “personality type” is, what you want it to be, and how to get from where you are to where you want to be.
April 162:00 PM – 3:00 PMBest Practices in the ClassroomIn this session, we first provide faculty with voter engagement resources that they can use to encourage students in their classrooms to be engaged. The second portion will be used for faculty to share classroom resources and ideas with one another.
April 162:00 PM – 3:00 PMBest Practices Beyond the ClassroomIn this session, faculty will learn steps to integrating these efforts more broadly on their campuses. We will discuss national programs to enroll in, building a campus coalition, implementing administration-supported voting efforts, and fostering a civically-minded campus culture. There will also be space for faculty to share resources and ideas with one another.
