St. Norbert College has been recognized by the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge (ALL IN) as a 2022 ALL IN Most Engaged Campuses for College Student Voting. The ALL IN Most Engaged Campuses for College Student Voting recognizes colleges and universities for making intentional efforts to increase student voter participation. St. Norbert College joins a group of 394 colleges and universities recognized by ALL IN for completing these four actions: participate in the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, share 2020 NSLVE reports with campus voting data with ALL IN, develop and submit a 2022 democratic engagement action plan with ALL IN and have a current signatory to ALL IN’s Higher Education Presidents’ Commitment to Full Student Voter Participation.

Robert Pyne, director of the Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice, & Understanding, wrote: “We are proud to be recognized as a Most Engaged Campus for College Student Voting. The staff and students at the Norman Miller Center work very hard to help eligible students exercise their right to vote, and we are especially mindful of those who have an opportunity to vote for the first time. We work closely with the city clerk's office, the Coalition of Voting Organizations of Brown County and the Wisconsin Elections Commission to stay on top of any changes in the voting laws, updating our strategies and communications accordingly. Norman Miller Center assistant director Jill Olson and student community organizer Bethany Kreklow (Tigerton, Wis.) led our student engagement efforts, partnering also with associate professor of art Brandon Bauer and the students in his ‘Art and Creative Democracy’ class. We brought in guest artists, hosted workshops and shuttled a record number of students to the polls during our Election Day party. That day we also gave away 300 purple T-shirts with a logo, designed by our student worker Cate Nelson (Grayslake, Ill.), that read ‘Your Voice, Your Vote, Our Democracy.’ At St. Norbert College, we strongly believe that these students are our future, and voting is one of the ways they will change the world.”

“College student voter turnout has increased since 2016, and this increase has been driven by students. The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge is excited to expand our ALL IN Student Voting Honor Roll to recognize these student voting champions across the country,” said Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, executive director of the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge. “These students registered voters, served on their campus voting coalitions, spearheaded voter education efforts, advocated for campus polling locations and organized other voter engagement efforts to ensure their peers were confident and informed voters. We are excited to see what they continue to accomplish ahead of the 2022 midterms.”

ALL IN, in collaboration with over 960 higher education institutions, seeks to make participation in local, state 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, skills, behaviors and values needed to be an informed and active citizen.
