Manhattan College Commits to Full Student Voter Participation
President Brennan O'Donnell has joined other higher education presidents in signing a commitment to work toward full student voter participation. Recognizing the responsibility of colleges and universities to prepare students to be informed and active citizens, and the importance of the student voice in elections, President O'Donnell encourages the college community to consider the ways curricular and extra-curricular experiences can support the development of students to become lifelong voters and engaged participants in their communities.
Manhattan College earned a Bronze seal for its participation rate in the 2018 election, and we aim to earn a higher award for higher participation in the 2020 election. Anyone interested in participating in this effort is encouraged to sign up for ourJasper Votes email list.
