The purpose of this libguide is to facilitate access to information resources and promote events that have been planned to mobilize the student body for participation in the 2020 Presidential Election.
We encourage students to use this libguide as a tool for navigating the upcoming election and set the stage for future civic activities. Students should understand that it is both their right and duty as U.S. citizens to vote. Furthermore, the resources in this libguide have been selected to inspire and engage students, as well as to provide channels for exploring the history of U.S. suffrage. It is a pathway to discover primary documents, like the Voting Act of 1965 or vintage footage of the Women's Suffrage Movement from the 1920s. It will facilitate access to current scholarship (academic journals, statistical data) and news (New York Times, Wall Street Journal, etc.) that will encourage students to conduct their own research on topics related to the subject featured in this guide.
The Civic Engagement
In an effort to meet the expectations outlined in this charge, the CEI will plan and organize activities, partner with student groups and departments, and sponsor campus-wide events that fall within the scope of the CEI charge. You can find out about upcoming events here, or on our Instagram @unioncivicengagement
