Widener Named a Best College for Student Voting

Widener University has been named one of the country’s best colleges for student voting. Washington Monthly recently published the list after reviewing student voter turnout, registration rates, and reports from college administrators about their efforts to promote voter participation. Schools had to demonstrate a repeated commitment to increasing student voting, and be transparent about results. 

At Widener, a group of committed individuals – including political science faculty, staff with the Center for Civic & Global Engagement, and undergraduate student Taylor Easter – have worked to mobilize students to register to vote and become politically engaged.
