Through this webinar, we will discuss the vital role that colleges and universities can play in ensuring a fair and complete count in the 2020 Census. A complete count is essential to ensuring that states maintain their federal funding levels and their representation in federal government. By working with students, staff, faculty, administrators, and most importantly, community partners, colleges and universities can support their communities in maintaining important resources. In this webinar, we will explore available resources as well as highlight schools gearing up for this work in 2020.
