Free Webinar on Understanding and Using Your NSLVE Data on 9/23/17

UNDERSTANDING AND USING YOUR NSLVE DATA
Wednesday, August 23 |  2:00 PM EST  |  60 minutes

All In Webinar Series image.png
The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) is the first and only nonpartisan study of individual and institution-level data on college student voting. More than 1,000 campuses are participating and will receive their data from the 2016 presidential election this summer. Reports will also include comparison data from the 2012 presidential election.

If you’re wondering what your campus should do once it receives its report, then we hope you’ll join us for this conversation. Participants will learn how to read and analyze the data to inform campus activities and programming. The results are designed to increase political engagement and to help foster a campus climate for civic learning and participation.

A presenter from the Institute for Democracy in Higher Education at Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life will share resources and tools on how to maximize use of the data and offer advice on sharing the results across your campus.

Note: Participants are strongly encouraged to review their campus reports in advance of the webinar. A full list of NSLVE’s participating campuses can be viewed online here. To obtain a copy of your institution’s report, please complete this online form.

Speaker:  Ishara Casellas Connors, Associate Director, Institute for Democracy and Higher Education, Tufts University

Citizenship Under Siege Webinar Series – RSVP today

Clashes Over Citizenship: Promoting, Listening, Learning, and Engagement

A Webinar Series of the Citizenship Under Siege Project

The U.S. Constitution’s preamble speaks of “We the People”—but who is considered part of that sacred circle, and how has this group varied over time? When national identity is hotly contested, what does it mean to experience citizenship as partial, denied, or fully acknowledged? How can the humanities illuminate differing narratives and open up space for understanding, connections, and shared visions of the future?

The Association of American Colleges and Universities and The Democracy Commitment invite faculty, staff, students, and campus community partners to join in one or all of three FREE webinars. These events are designed to expand campus expertise on how to hold constructive conversations about contentious issues and how to institute practices in and out of the classroom that foster engagement across differences.  Register TODAY and join us!

Tomorrow’s Webinar:
Webinar #1: From Fractious Differences to Engaged Dialogues 
October 13, 2016 | 3:00–4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

How can texts and techniques from the humanities disrupt unexamined positions, put human faces to abstract ideas, and help open up spaces where dialogue and consensus might emerge on historic and contemporary questions about citizenship and who deserves it? What models exist for training dialogue facilitators who can help encourage listening and perspective taking across seemingly intractable positions?

Presenters:

  • Verdis Robinson, Interim National Manager, The Democracy Commitment
  • Caryn McTighe Musil, Senior Director of Civic Learning and Democracy Initiatives, Association of American Colleges and Universities
  • John Soltes, Communication Department, County College of Morris
  • Jason Zelesky, Dean of Students, Mount Wachusett Community College

RSVP HERE. 


Upcoming Webinars:
Webinar #2: Income Inequality and the Cost of Citizenship

October 27, 2016 | 3:00–4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

When economic disparities—often intertwined with ethnic, racial, and religious differences—impose real limitations on public participation, how can the humanities provide insights into the historic and persistent reality of differential access to full citizenship rights? Learn how several campuses have engaged their students and communities in examining this issue.

Presenters:

  • Steve Davis, History Department, Lone Star College, Kingwood
  • Jill A. Schennum, Chair, Anthropology, Social Sciences, and Economics, County College of Morris
  • Seth Howard, Assistant Director, Center for Civic Engagement, Lone Star College
  • Fagan Forhan, Assistant Dean of K-12 Partnerships and Civic Engagement, Mount Wachusett Community College

Hosts:

  • Verdis Robinson, Interim National Manager, The Democracy Commitment
  • Caryn McTighe Musil, Senior Director of Civic Learning and Democracy Initiatives, Association of American Colleges and Universities

RSVP HERE.


Webinar #3:  I Want My Country Back: Immigration, Race, and Citizenship
November 3, 2016 | 3:00–4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

In the midst of sometimes-dramatic demographic and cultural shifts, how have the humanities served to illuminate felt experiences, historical contexts, and ethical issues as the rich mosaic of people in the United States fluctuates? What approaches, courses, and public events lead to shared ends rather than perpetual conflict or feelings of displacement?

Presenters:

  • David Kalivas, World History and Director of the Commonwealth Honors Program, Middlesex Community College
  • Helen-Margaret Nasser, Associate Director of the Honors Program, Kingsborough Community College
  • Dona Cady, Dean, Global Education, and Matthew Olson, Dean, Humanities and Social Sciences, Middlesex Community College
  • David Price, History Department, and Vilma E. Fuentes, Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs, Santa Fe College

Hosts:

  • Verdis Robinson, Interim National Manager, The Democracy Commitment
  • Caryn McTighe Musil, Senior Director of Civic Learning and Democracy Initiatives, Association of American Colleges and Universities
