UD Student Voting & Civic Engagement

Welcome and thank you for visiting the University of Delaware’s Steering Committee for Student Voting and Civic Engagement. The committee was formed in the Fall of 2019 and charged by the Vice President of Student Life. Members who represent all facets of the University community, including faculty, staff, and students, strive to encourage students to vote, engage in their communities, and practice civil discourse.

UD aims to develop leaders and citizens of the future. The work of the Steering Committee amplifies opportunities for students to develop skills necessary to serve in these roles.

If you have interest in learning more about the work of the Student Voting and Civic Engagement Steering Committee, please feel free to reach out to one of us.
