Spotlight on MSIs: Turning Activism into Votes
Produced by University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Minority Serving Institutions with partner organizations, this report highlights MSIs that are successfully implementing civic engagement initiatives on their campuses. Despite a legacy of being civically active, many MSI students today continue to face barriers getting to the polls. Nevertheless, many MSIs persist and advocate for student democratic engagement. This report serves to highlight some of those MSIs, including Prairie View A & M University (TX), Miami Dade College, and Northeastern Illinois University, which are overcoming barriers to voting for their students—institutions that serve as role models for turning student activism into votes.
