- Is your campus participating in NSLVE? | Due: May 27, 2016
By now, you know about Tufts University’s National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE). A free service, NSLVE measures student registration and voting rates and provides each participating campus with a tailored report containing those rates broken down by age, class level, race/ethnicity, gender, voting method, and voting location. See a sample report. This is your last chance before the 2016 election to join more than 800 colleges and universities nationwide that have already learned their rates for 2012 and 2014. Over 150 ADP campuses are currently participating.This is not a survey! All you need to do is submit this authorization form. For more information, visit the NSLVE website. Submit your form by May 13, 2016. Not sure if your campus is participating? View the list of NSLVE campuses here.
