The Pro Humanitate Institute has a long history of facilitating political engagement for college students. In 2012, we launched “Wake the Vote,” an intensive civic engagement project. Since that time, we have offered a variety of opportunities to create relationships across difference, examine issues critical to American elections, build competencies for engaged citizenship, and experience American democracy. Students lead deliberative dialogues, campaign for candidates, participate in “teach-in” sessions with faculty, and register others to vote.
