Voting During COVID: Nonpartisan Strategies on Campus
Voting During COVID: Nonpartisan Strategies on Campus
Edie Goldenberg, UM Professor
Many efforts are underway to increase college student voting. This panel of college students will discuss what is happening at U-M, statewide, and nationally to get students registered to vote and committed to voting. The panel will also discuss what motivated them to get involved with these efforts, what they have learned along the way, and how the pandemic has impacted their work.  The panel will be moderated by Edie Goldenberg, PhD, Professor of Political Science and Public Policy at University of Michigan. 

Edie N. Goldenberg is Professor of Political Science and Public Policy at the University of Michigan. She is currently the faculty advisor of Turn Up Turnout (TUT), a student organization on campus that works in a nonpartisan way to increase student voting at UM. TUT also works with other universities in the Big Ten Conference, with colleges around the state of Michigan, with more than 50 other universities across the country, and with a number of national organizations. Previously, Dr. Goldenberg served as founder and faculty director of the Michigan in Washington Program (2004-16), Dean of the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (1989-98), and Director of the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy (1987-89).
