Voting Initiative

The National Study of Learning, Voting, & Engagement (NSLVE)

In 2016, as part of the NASPA Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Lead Initiative, Baylor joined the National Study of Learning, Voting, & Engagement (NSLVE) sponsored by the Institute for Democracy in Higher Education at Tufts University. NSLVE is the first and only study to objectively examine student and institution-level data on student registration & voting and to share these data with participating campuses.

Voting is by no means the only indicator of civic engagement, but it is fundamental. Studying the voting rates of students provides an important measure that can catalyze improvements in academic programs and co-curricular experiences (NSLVE, 2017).
