Center for Civic Engagement

Get Involved in Civic Issues

As engaged citizens, it is important to seek out knowledge about pressing social issues. It is equally important that we understand the ways we can take action to affect positive change.

Nazareth has provided a list of resources for students, staff, and faculty to become more active citizens through voter registration, voter education and voter turnout programs while learning how to become more involved in civic and political engagement matters.


Your right. Your responsibility. Your vote.

The objectives of the NazVotes initiatives are to increase the number of students who are registered voters as well as encourage students to become active citizens in civic and political engagement matters. 

You have the opportunity to let your voice be heard not just by registering to vote, but by getting out  and voting in EVERY election. 

Democracy depends on you.
