Statement by the President Announcing the Creation of the Department of Civic Engagement

July 31st, 2020

I’m incredibly excited to announce the @UPUA‘s Department of Civic Engagement, which was created by our administration’s first Executive Order this evening.

Through this institutionalization of voter registration, education, and participation among the undergraduate student body, I’m confident the UPUA will play a more defined role in leading and organizing campus-wide efforts ahead of Election Day — this year and every year.

I encourage any student interested in promoting civic engagement through the UPUA to apply at! Applications will go live tomorrow morning (August 1).
