Voter Engagement

What you need to know

Go beyond your vote

All members of the campus community are encouraged to vote and stay engaged in the political process. You have many ways to interact with government officials and community organizations and participate in engaging activities throughout the year.

You can also get to know your elected officials by signing up for their newsletters and following them on social media. Let them know where you stand on issues by calling, writing or emailing their office and attending their public meetings.

As members of an institution of higher learning, we must periodically reaffirm the fundamental ethics and values that form the framework for our university. This means fostering a climate of acceptance, mutual respect, academic freedom, and civil discourse.

As a university, IUPUI has the unique opportunity to examine its actions and policies, laying bare how the brutality of systemic racism is translated into higher education’s daily practices, expectations, predictions, decision-making and regulations that target Black and other people of Color.
