Joining a Statewide Movement to Educate Our Students

In the summer of 2016, a small group of dedicated staff and faculty met to start outlining how NECC would join a statewide initiative to prepare our students to be informed and active voters in the upcoming election season. Based on this and subsequent conversations, NECC declared the month of October to be our 2016 Election Teach-In. Using a combination of classroom instruction and campus wide events, NECC faculty and staff worked together to register, educate, and encourage our students to be engaged, active voters in the 2016 Election.
