赌场官方网投 has been recognized by the 都在 校园 Democracy Challenge as a 2022 都在 Most Engaged 校园 for College Student 投票. The distinction honors colleges and universities for their efforts to increase student voter participation. 

OU joins a group of only 394 colleges and universities nationwide recognized by 都在 for completing these four actions:

The 都在 校园 Democracy Challenge empowers colleges and universities to achieve excellence in nonpartisan student democratic engagement. 校园es that join the 都在 校园 Democracy Challenge complete a set of action items, with the support of 都在 Challenge staff, to institutionalize nonpartisan civic learning, political engagement and voter participation on their campus. The Challenge currently engages over 9 million students from more than 950 institutions in all 50 状态s and the District of Columbia.

The recognition from 都在 is a testament to the quality of work we have been doing around election engagement activities. We are delighted to be on this list, but it wouldn’t be possible without the support of a number of people who pave the way for this work to be successful,戴夫·杜里奥说, professor of political science and director of OU’s Center for Civic Engagement. “This includes students who help with voter registration and activities. 除了, OU’s leadership – including President Pescovitz and the Board of Trustees – have been incredibly supportive of all our efforts. We’re delighted to have their backing to continue this work.” 

除了 to the 都在 recognition, OU appeared on the 2022 Washington Monthly Best Colleges for Student 投票 Honor Roll and has been recognized as a 选民友好校园 by the Fair Election Center’s 校园 Vote Project for the past two election cycles. 

Of the Michigan colleges participating in the National Study of Learning, 投票, 和参与, OU ranked fourth in voter turnout in 2020 and had a nearly 90%
voter registration rate, among the highest in the 状态.

关于 the 都在 校园 Democracy Challenge:

The 都在 校园 Democracy Challenge is a national nonpartisan initiative of Civic Nation, a 501(c)(3) organization. 都在 strives to change civic culture and institutionalize democratic engagement activities and programs on college campuses, making voter participation a defining feature of campus life.

都在, in collaboration with over 960 higher education institutions, seeks to make participation in local, 状态, and federal elections a social norm; substantially increase the number of college students who are democratically engaged on an ongoing basis, during and between elections, and not just at the polls; and make educating for democratic engagement on college campuses an accepted and expected part of the culture and curriculum so that students graduate with the knowledge, 技能, 行为, and values needed to be an informed and active citizen.
