ALL IN Challenge recognizes NC campuses for 2016 voter participation
Last week in Washington, D.C., the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge hosted its first-ever awards ceremony to recognize colleges and universities that achieved high student voter participation in 2016. In all, more than 30 awards were announced, including the Highest Voting Rate for University of Missouri – Saint Louis and the Most Improved Voting Rate for Northwestern University. ALL IN also recognized high-performing campuses with a Gold Seal (70+% voting rate), Silver Seal (60-69%), and Bronze Seal (50-59%).
Campuses were recognized based on their student voting rates as measured by the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE). Campuses that take part in NSLVE are not required to share their results, and individual campus voting rates are not made public by NSLVE researchers. However, campuses that choose to participate in the ALL IN Challenge do agree to enroll in the study and to share their NSLVE results. Over 1,000 colleges and universities are currently enrolled in NSLVE, including 24 in North Carolina. About 300 campuses take part in the ALL IN Challenge.
Congratulations to the following campuses in NC that were recognized by ALL IN:
North Carolina State University
Queens University of Charlotte
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
University of North Carolina at Greensboro
