ADP Campus Coordinators Corner: Election-Related Programming
Georgia College is located adjacent to Milledgeville’s downtown district. The campus has a spacious “front campus” lawn with mature hardwood trees and a row of historic brick buildings that date back one hundred years and more. In 2008, ADP and Georgia College’s Rhetoric Department co-sponsored a series of debate watches.
We invited citizens to join students, faculty, and staff and bring lawn chairs, snacks, and blankets to watch the first presidential debate on a large screen accompanied by exterior speakers in a quasi-drive-in movie setting. Approximately 150 people attended the event and some remained for a debate debriefing session. Subsequent debate watch events were held in the campus library’s coffee shop.
As the semester begins on many ADP campuses and election-related planning commences, what do you have in mind to engage students in the presidential election and ongoing political engagement?
Please share your plans for voting registration, debate watch, and other events in this quick online survey.
Results will be shared with all ADP Campus Coordinators!
