Message Guidance: 2020 National Study of Learning Voting & Engagement (NSLVE)

The coming release of Tufts University’s Institute for Democracy and Higher Education’s (IDHE) national and campus National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) reports offers college campuses a unique opportunity to highlight their democratic engagement efforts during the last election cycle. This guidance is meant to help campuses communicate their NSLVE data in a way that highlights the work done to achieve their NSLVE results and Tufts University’s IDHE’s work to conduct the study.

How would a campus best use this resource?
Use the guidance to communicate your NSLVE data to the broader public. In addition to the guidance, be sure to consult IDHE’s “Using Your NSLVE Reports” and “Readiness for Discussing Democracy in Supercharged Political Times” reports for guidance on campus-wide discussions about your NSLVE report, and how to navigate the overall campus climate for political engagement. To help you share your NSLVE reports on social media, we’ve created a Canva Template that you can plug in your campus numbers, colors, and logos into.
