2013 Indiana Civic Leadership Conference
Friday, November 15, 2013
Indiana Government Conference Center
200 West Washington Street Indianapolis, IN 46204
During this one-day conference, students will hear from state leaders in education and government; engage in meaningful conversations that focus on the issues affecting higher education in Indiana; and have the opportunity to come together around a shared commitment to action to create a strengthened network of informed, civic leaders in Indiana higher education.
What participants had to say about the 2012 Civic Leadership Conference:
• I learned so much from Commissioner Lubber's presentation. She motivated me to become more aware of what our state government leaders in the state house are doing when it comes to education in Indiana.
• It was so valuable to learn from senators and legislators who know how we can get our ideas put into action and have them teach us how to do it.
• Meeting and talking with other student leaders from across the state was a highlight of the conference.
• The collaboration between a diverse group of people all sharing ideas for a common purpose has reinforced my commitment to stay engaged.
• I appreciated being able to communicate concerns of college students to other campus leaders and members of the statehouse in a true dialogue.

Join an innovative national research initiative
Don’t miss your opportunity to measure your students’ aggregate voting rates via CIRCLE’s new National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE). The sign-up deadline is March 15, 2013. And it’s free, easy, confidential, and FERPA-compliant.
- Will learn valuable baseline data that can be used for comparisons in upcoming election years;
- Will help build a national database for future research on college student voting and civic learning;
- Can compare their voting rates with those of their peers; and
- May request customization and participate in a special study (hurry because there’s a cap on the number of campuses that can do this).
The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) is a national student voter engagement research study open to all Campus Compact member campuses. This study offers colleges and universities an opportunity to measure student registration and voting rates and to study the effectiveness of educational programs designed to increase civic learning and engagement in democracy. By participating, your institution can join an innovative national research initiative.
How it works:
Whether an individual registers and votes is a matter of public record; however, how an individual votes is not. A secure, confidential, and FERPA-compliant system for matching enrollment lists with public records has been created to gather voting rates for student bodies and specified subgroups. Participating campuses will receive a report on trends and patterns in aggregate findings. For specifics, see the NSLVE FAQs.
