WVU's 2022 Civic Action Plan

The purpose of this action plan is to collaborate and create a strategy to increase student voting rates, informed decision making, and help students form the habits of active and engaged citizenship.

ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge

West Virginia University is proud to participate in the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge alongside other Big XII universities. This challenge means that:

  1. WVU is committed to increasing college student voting rates;
  2. WVU participates in the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) and publicly posts all voting information, which can be found at ALL IN's WVU page; and
  3. WVU biannually creates and updates a Civic Action Plan that details who, when, where, and why the University participates in civic engagement.
The University's ALL IN page can be found here

“Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.”
