The SLSV Coalition is a diverse group of local, state, and national organizations dedicated to increasing student voter participation and civic engagement. As a partner in this coalition, Campus Compact recommends the use of the SLSV Checklist.
The SLSV Checklist is an easy, four-step process to integrate democratic engagement into campus culture:
- LEAD: Ensure a person is appointed by a respected campus leader to lead your student democratic engagement programs.
- ENGAGE: Convene a meeting of relevant administrators from student affairs, academics affairs, and government relations, as well as faculty and student leadership to discuss a campus-wide effort to increase civic learning and democratic participation.
- ASSESS: Measure your campus voting rate.
- PLAN: Draft and submit a written action plan for increasing your campus-wide democratic engagement that will be evaluated post-election.
Below is a toolkit for Implementing the Checklist on Community College Campuses.
